Project Overview
This 30 acre basin was traditionally an excellent type IV wetland. However its value for waterfowl has declined significantly because of high water and rough fish. A temporary drawdown is needed to restore the basin's potential as an excellent waterfowl habitat. To accomplish the draw down a sheet pile water control structure will be installed at the outlet of the basin. This will regenerate the basin and reestablish aquatic vegetation needed for nesting or migrating waterfowl.
