Wisconsin's newly updated Water Quality Report to Congress 2014 summarizes surface water and ground water condition.

Wisconsin is water rich, with thousands of streams stretching over 84,000 miles, inland lakes that span more than 1 million acres, 1,000 miles of Great Lakes shoreline and more than five million wetland acres. Beneath this surface water bounty lies an equally rich supply of groundwater.
