Wetlands Reserve Program - Oklahoma

Copan WMA - Moist-soil Enhancement

To enhance 441 acres of moist-soil habitat on Copan WMA through the construction of levees and the installation of a permanent pump station. In addition to the 3.5 miles of levee restoration, 10 stop-log water control structures were installed on 5 units.

Wister WMA - Wetlands Enhancement

To enhance 270 acres of moist-soil and green-tree habitats by installation of a cross-levee and permanent pump station.

Keystone WMA - Cottonwood Creek Unit

To enhance 275 acres of moist-soil habitat through construction of 6 cross-levees and the installation of several water control structures. This work was necessary to improve moist-soil management capabilities and create more desirable water depths for feeding waterfowl.

Hackberry Flat WMA

To enhance 3,700 acres of wetlands on 25 units through construction of 35 miles of dikes, 4 miles of water distribution canals, and approximately 90 water control structures. In addition, a 17 mile pipeline and NRCS watershed structure was constructed to manage 2,400 acre/feet of water, which is delivered to Hackberry Flat by the Bureau of Reclamation annually.

Red Slough WMA

To restore the hydrologic conditions and wetland functions of the nearly 6,000 acre historic backwater slough of the Red River. Several phases of construction have built more than 25 miles of levees, 400 acres of reservoirs, and the installation of several water control structures.
