Historically, southeast Missouri was known for its low, wet areas. Sloughs criss-crossed and faded in and out of the landscape. When the fall rains came, the sloughs flooded up, and the water spread out onto surrounding land. Some of the sloughs we're creating in Duck Creek Units A and B will work similarly. They will be low, wet areas in the spring and summer, allowing the pools to be flooded up in the fall for waterfowl season.
