New pump gives new life to large coastal wetland

The replacement of a failed pump structure at the Nayanquing Point State Wildlife Area in eastern Michigan is helping to restore some of the state’s coastal wetlands.

Michigan has more Great Lakes coastline than any other state, but has lost 70 percent of its coastal wetlands over the past two centuries. The $192,862 Nayanquing Point project, which was funded by the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, allows wetland managers to manipulate water levels in a 298-acre -marsh at the site, which provide better habitat for birds and more hunting opportunities.
