Purpose: To enhance 600 acres of wetlands habitat on Springdale WMA through installation of three water control structures and construction of small perimeter levees. The water level in Enid Lake is typically drawn-down during fall months in preparation for flood control. This project will retain water in fall and winter, thus providing valuable foraging habitat to migrating and wintering waterfowl near Enid Lake. It will be managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to improve waterfowl management capabilities.
