Fond Du Lac River TWA WQM Plan Public Review Draft (2017)

Purpose

This project will evaluate water quality improvements made in the Fond Du Lac River Watershed from Best Management Practices installed in the watershed from 1997 through 2008 as part of the Fond Du Lac River Priority Watershed Project. [TWA HUC 10-0403020302 FDL]

Objective

This project will evaluate the effectiveness of BMPs installed in 3 HUC 12 watersheds in the Fond Du Lac River HUC 10-0403020302 watershed following a Priority Watershed Project in 1997. This project will determine if the goals of the Priority Watershed Project to protect and improve the watershed water quality were met.

Outcome

Water quality monitoring will be conducted at 13 locations. Aquatic macroinvertebrates will be collected at 6 locations in October 2015. One day of sampling and 1 day to represerve and transport to UWSP. All data will be entered into SWIMS database by UWSP staff by 12/30/2016. Qualitative Habitat surveys will be conducted at 7 locations in FY16. Habitat data will be collected at each location during fish surveys and 1 day is needed to enter the data into database. All data will be entered into FMDB by Water Resources staff by 12/31/2015. Fish surveys will be conducted at 7 locations in FY16. Three days of sampling will be needed to complete the field surveys from July through September 2015. All fish data will be entered into the FMDB by Water Resources staff by 12/31/2015. Thermistors will be deployed at 6 locations from May to October 2015 to collect temperature data. Two sampling days will occur to deploy and retrieve the thermistors. All data will be uploaded into SWIMS by Water Resources staff by 06/30/2016. Inorganic chemistry (TP and TSS) monitoring will be conducted at 9 locations. Sampling will occur once per month May through October 2015 for TP and TSS at 9 locations. All samples will be sent to Wisconsin State Lab of Hygiene for analysis and will be entered by the lab into SWIMS by 06/30/2016. A final report will be written and attached to this project by 12/31/2016.

Study Design

Aquatic macroinvertebrate samples will be collected at 6 locations. Qualitative Habitat assessments will be conducted at 7 locations. Fish surveys will be conducted at 7 locations. Temperature thermistors will be deployed at 5 locations. Inorganic chemistry (TP and TSS) monitoring will be conducted at 9 locations.
