The labor-intensive job of diverting fresh water into the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge has become easier since the Savannah District replaced the old wooden structures with custom-built diversion gates. At a cost of $12.5 million, the new stainless steel structures modernize and automate the process of controlling water in the area. Previously, wildlife managers with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service could only route water to 3,000 acres of wetlands for waterfowl; with the gate improvements the water management area has doubled to 6,000 acres. Produced by George Jumara.
