Banner Lakes State Wildlife Area

Project: Banner Lakes State Wildlife Area (near Hudson) Wetland Enhancement

Partners: Colorado Division of Wildlife (CDOW)

Contractor: Western Cleanup, Fort Morgan

Description: Replacement/installation of 10 large water control structures in existing ponds. Water control structures were either non-functional or non-existent thus ponds were continually full. This created dense stands of cattail. New structures give CDOW capabilty of managing water levels and controlling vegetation.

Notes: Banner Lakes is the Ducks Unlimited Legacy Greenwing Dedication site.

Hunting: Property is managed by CDOW and hunting is by reservation in most cases. Call CDOW for details.

Completion Date: January 1996
