Burchard Wildlife Area Remains Closed for Repairs


TECUMSEH, Neb. (AP) -- The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says public access to Burchard Wildlife Management Area remains closed while repairs continue.

The work includes repairs on a leaky dam outlet structure, improving access for boaters and anglers, and fish habitat improvements.

Final work on the outlet structure is scheduled for this month. The water level must rise before workers can complete construction of a floating dock, which is the final piece of the project.

The 145-acre reservoir is in Pawnee County, northeast of the town of Burchard.
