DeKorte’s Shorebird Pool Water Levels Lowered

During the month of August, the Meadowlands Commission is lowering the water levels in the Shorebird Pool at DeKorte whenever possible in order to provide daylong mudflats for migrating shorebirds.

The levels were recently lowered, and so far we have been getting plenty of peeps, Yellowlegs and Dowitchers.

If/When water levels are increased, it is because of concerns over dissolved oxygen levels.
