Not all wetlands are pumped. Many existing public areas cannot be pumped because neither the USFWS nor Game and Parks own enough of the basin, and pumping could flood private land. Another consideration is the cost to drill new wells and acquire and operate pumps.

In addition to hunting, wetlands are pumped to provide habitat for migrating waterfowl and the other water birds, to provide areas for people to observe wildlife, and to spread out the distribution of migrating birds and reduce the possibility of disease outbreaks.
