Jim Lake Drawdown Channel Arrowwood National Wildlife Refuge
Jim Lake drawdown channel looking north. Photograph taken from 17th Street SE between Pingree, North Dakota, and State Highway 20. The downstream Jamestown Reservoir was filled in 1965 and backed water onto the Arrowwood National Wildlife Refuge, preventing ideal management in most years. Artificial water features subsequently constructed on the refuge allow managers to manipulate water levels to better manage habitat for wildlife needs.
