In conjunction with the New Mexico Department of Game and
Fish, Ducks Unlimited will soon start wetland enhancement work at the William
S. Huey Wildlife Management Area near Artesia. Work will involve
construction of a small water delivery system to provide water for a new
50-acre moist-soil unit, levee work on existing units, enhancement of an oxbow
lake and improvements to 90 acres of waterfowl roost ponds.
The 2,880-acre Huey WMA is on the Pecos River between
Artesia and Carlsbad in southern New Mexico.
