Purpose: This project involves establishment of 8 moist-soil units west of Hog Bayou in the Mission Lake Unit of Guadalupe Delta WMA. Size of each unit will range from 5 - 50 acres and involve construction of levees and installation of water control structures. Inundation of the moist-soil units will be accomplished through normal rainfall and/or pumping freshwater from Hog Bayou.
