New trailer-mounted power unit will improve water delivery dependability.

Ducks Unlimited is working with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) to continue enhancements to Eagle Lake Refuge in Shelby County. Six shallow water impoundments were enhanced through a North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) grant last year. Thanks to leveraging of DU dollars with Pittman-Robertson funds from the state, the partners are installing water wells and purchasing two trailer-mounted diesel power units. These additions will provide a dependable water supply for the impoundments and facilitate habitat management for waterfowl and other wetland-dependent species.
