What influence do Rivers, such as the Mississippi, have on Wetlands. In class I understood that dams are built to control water to go to different destinations. If the Wetlands are already water saturated wouldn't that destroy the land around the wetlands?

When a river is damed it creates a reservor in the river valley and that flooded land is destoryed and in marsh lands people dam up the dreans with sand bags to slow the filtration and flow of the water because in some cases nature can't filter out all the pollutens man has added by her self.
