Magruder Construction Recognized by Army Corps of Engineers.Magruder Construction was proud to have been recognized as the prime contractor on the Ted Shanks Habitat Rehabilitation and Enhancement Project. Col. Bryan Sizemore, St. Louis District commander recognizes the successful partnership among the Missouri Department of Conservation, the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Ducks Unlimited, and the Corps of Engineers in the completion of the Ted Shanks Habitat Rehabilitation and Enhancement Project. The project constructed setback levees to reconnect portions of the conservation area with the natural floodplain, water control structures and drainage channels to manage interior water levels and improve site drainage, pumping facilities to rapidly bring water into and out of the site, and large areas of new tree plantings of native bottomland hardwoods. As part of the Corps of Engineers' Upper Mississippi River Restoration Program, the Ted Shanks Conservation Area Habitat Rehabilitation and Enhancement Project is comprised of approximately 2,900-acres that has been degraded by the 1993 flood and long-term sedimentation. The project, which is located near the confluence of the Mississippi and Salt Rivers in Pike County, Missouri, lies within the Clarence Cannon National Wildlife and Fish Refuge and is managed by the Missouri Department of Conservation.
