Significance: The dams represent a historical movement to preserve wildlife and wildlife habitat in the United States, which began in the mid-19th century and continues today. The refuge dams are significant for their association with the development of a national wildlife refuge system during the New Deal Era. The dams also are representative examples of dams designed by the Federal Government during the New Deal Era for conservation projects. Dam 83, Lake Darling Dam, is particularly significant for its role in storing a supply of water for the restored migratory waterfowl habitat at J. Clark Salyer Refuge, which the Federal Government considers one of the most important in its nationwide network of migratory waterfowl breeding grounds.
