Two DU projects are nearing completion on Mad Island Wildlife Management Area (WMA) near Bay City, Texas
. In the first project, a new water-control structure will improve management capabilities on more than 460 acres of emergent and submersed marsh habitats
in Big Muddy and Cane lakes.
The second project, which involved the installation of a deepwater well, will increase water-management capacity and provide fresh water to approximately 200 acres of moist-soil habitat managed for waterfowl. Moist-soil impoundments are among the most popular hunting areas on Mad Island WMA. Both projects will enhance waterfowl habitat and public hunting
