DU Completes Wetland Enhancement Project in South Carolina

Ducks Unlimited recently completed waterfowl habitat enhancement efforts on the Lake Emily unit of Bonneau Ferry Wildlife Management Area, north of Charleston. DU enhanced 74 acres of managed moist-soil and semi-permanent wetland impoundments by installing three water-control structures and two embankments. DU also installed several emergency spillways to address management issues that have jeopardized infrastructure and to correct problems that have caused crop losses during three of the past five years. The Lake Emily unit is a public waterfowl hunting area popular with youth and adult hunters.
