Creston wildlife area being upgraded by Ducks Unlimited

Ducks Unlimited Canada will be undertaking construction work at the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area this fall. The work will consist of upgrading and fixing several of the water control structures and repairing some of the dikes. The work, which began mid-September, will continue into October, primarily in Corn Creek Marsh and the Leach Lake unit.

“In order to conduct the work effectively, water levels in many of the ponds had to be brought down significantly,” said information provided by the CVWMA. “Water levels will remain low throughout the duration of the work period, but should be back to normal levels for the spring of 2013.”

The dikes will remain open to the public for the duration of the work, but temporary closures will allow the work to be conducted safely. The work sites require high-visibility vests, hard hats and safety boots, and visitors are asked to respect the restrictions for their own safety.

“We apologize for any inconvenience the work may cause, but these upgrades are critical to maintaining the quality and productiveness of the CVWMA wetland,” said the release.
