Carpenter Creek (Waushara Co) TMDL

Purpose

Carpenter Creek is 6.0 miles in length. This stream flows in a southerly direction before emptying into the Pine River. The creek and its watershed are entirely in Waushara County. Carpenter Creek is located within the Carpenter Creek subwatershed, one of 12 subwatersheds that make up the Pine River Willow Creek Watershed of the Wolf River Basin. The 12.7 square mile drainage area to Carpenter Creek is 42% of the area of Carpenter Creek subwatershed as described in the Pine River/ Willow Creek Priority Watershed Project.

Objective

Carpenter Creek is part of a larger watershed project, the Pine River/ Willow Creek Priority Watershed Project. As part of a financing plan for priority watershed projects, long-term state cost-sharing and local staff funding was committed to the Pine River/ Willow Creek Priority Watershed Plan. A copy of the watershed plan is attached to this TMDL.

Outcome

Reduce excess sediment and total suspended solids and restore degraded habitat for TMDL Approved which was approved in 2004 and is in implementation.
