$294,000 Approved for U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Construction Project
U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke today announced $294,000 in funding approved for critical U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service infrastructure in Maine. All funds will be used to replace the Spurwink Public Fishing Pier in Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge. This is part of $50 million going to a list of projects across the country to address dire maintenance and repair projects contributing to the $1.4 billion backlog facing the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service manages 566 national wildlife refuges and 38 wetland management areas and operates national fish hatcheries, fish technology centers and fish health centers. The agency is responsible for over $46 billion in constructed real property assets that include over 25,000 structures (e.g., buildings and water management structures) as well as nearly 14,000 roads, bridges, and dams.

In March, Interior announced the Secretary’s partnership with Congress on a bipartisan bill to address rebuild and repair National Park Service infrastructure.
