Description
The Waterford Waterway Management District (WWMD) is requesting assistance to undertake projects that will improve the area for wildlife and enhance fisheries. 

Background
Sediment accumulation has impaired the quality of the entire waterway within the district including Conservancy Bay and other bay areas. This sediment has reduced the district's value for aquatic habitat and quality of the fishery. An opportunity exists to complete Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration project. The project will investigate whether there is a federal interest in providing aquatic habitat restoration within the WWMD lake area.
