Watershed - Sevenmile and Tenmile Creeks (CW09)
Sevenmile and Tenmile Creeks Watershed

Details

The Sevenmile and Tenmile Creek Watershed is located in the counties of Adams, Portage, Wood and Waushara. This watershed is a maze of ditches and laterals that were created to drain lowland areas for agricultural activities. There are large sections of land that have been purchased by the state that are being maintained for grassland ecosystems. Both grazing and pivot irrigation are two land uses that impact the water quality of Sevenmile and Tenmile Creeks Watershed.

This watershed was ranked using the Nonpoint Source Priority Watershed Selection Criteria. Based on surface and ground water data, the overall ranking is high, establishing Sevenmile and Tenmile Creek Watershed as a high priority for future grant eligibility through the Runoff Management grant program.

This watershed plan was finalized in 2016 but was compiled over a period of two years. Please contact your water quality biologist to obtain more information. View a lovely photo of one of the watershed's highly prized trout streams, by Scott Provost, WDNR.

Ecological Landscapes for Sevenmile and Tenmile Creeks Watershed

Ecological Landscapes

The Sevenmile and Tenmile Creeks Watershed is located primarily in the Central Sand Plains Ecological Landscape which is located in central Wisconsin, occurs on a flat, sandy lake plain, and supports agriculture, forestry, recreation, and wildlife management. The Ecological Landscape formed in and around what was once Glacial Lake Wisconsin, which contained glacial meltwater extending over 1.1 million acres at its highest stage. Soils are primarily sandy lake deposits, some with silt-loam loess caps. Sandstone buttes carved by rapid drainage of the glacial lake, or by wave action when they existed as islands in the lake, are distinctive features of this landscape. The historic vegetation of the area included extensive wetlands of many types, including open bogs, shrub swamps, and sedge meadows. Prairies, oak forests, savannas and barrens also occurred in the Ecological Landscape. An area of more mesic forest with white pine and hemlock was found in the northwest portion, including a significant pinery in eastern Jackson County. Today, nearly half of the Ecological Landscape is nonforested, in agriculture and grassland. Most of the historic wetlands were drained early in the 1900s and are now used for vegetable cropping. The forested portion is mostly oak-dominated forest, followed by aspen and pines. A minor portion is maple-basswood forest and lowland hardwoods.

Hydrologic Features

Much of the upper portion of the watershed has been ditched in the early 1900's for drainage of the land. The Drainage District continues to provide maintenance dredging in order to remove sediment and vegetation from the channel. According to the District, this practice promotes improved drainage of the adjacent agricultural fields. A decision by DATCAP requires maintenance dredging to go no deeper than the approved profile. The Department supports this because over-dredging removes critical in-stream habitat for trout and other aquatic organisms, creates deep, low velocity pools, increases sedimentation, increases in-stream habitat recovery time and reduces potential spawning areas. Fluctuating water levels and heavy siltation have reduced the trout population in the ditches. High nitrate values and streambank pasturing (sedimentation) can cause water quality problems in some of the streams in the watershed.

Impaired Water in Sevenmile and Tenmile Creeks Watershed
River and Stream QualityAll Waters in Watershed

The watershed includes the towns of Pine Grove, Grant, and Almond. The Portage County Soil Erosion Control Plan identifies these towns as having excessive soil loss rates due to wind and water erosion.

There are several cranberry farms located in the watershed that utilize water for their operation. Water drawn from ditches reduces stream flow, decreases adult fish cover, reduces spawning areas for trout and likely exposes fish redds, and may result in an increase of water temperatures. Discharges from cranberry marshes can adversely affect water temperatures, deposit sediment, and release nutrients to the ditches. Periodic impounding of the ditches to flood marshes may prevent fish migration, increase water temperatures and de-water downstream reaches.

Watershed Outstanding & Exceptional Resources

Groundwater

Stream flow, or discharge, is the volume of water moving down a stream or river per unit of time and is commonly expressed in cubic feet per second (cfs). Stream flow and velocity affect food sources, spawning areas and migration paths of fish and other wildlife (DNR, 2010). In streams with adequate groundwater flow (baseflow), significant flow is maintained during prolonged dry periods allowing fish and tiny aquatic organisms to survive. Stream flow can be affected by humans. In watersheds with high human impacts, baseflow may be depleted by withdrawals for irrigation, domestic, or industrial purposes. Groundwater is drawn away from the stream creating a decline in the amount of water that would otherwise flow to the stream. The depletion of baseflow to the stream reduces flows overall, but reduced flows are more noticeable during dry periods and may leave little water for fish and other aquatic life at crucial times. Streamflows in the Wisconsin Central Sands have been depressed in recent years, more so in areas with large densities of high capacity wells. For example, the Little Plover River, a former high-quality trout stream and a Wisconsin Exceptional Resource Water, was near dry in 2003 and has dried in stretches since (Kraft et al., 2010). Still the question of how big the human impacts are on central Wisconsin rivers and streams remains in question. By meeting the goals of this project, baseflow monitoring can help professionals throughout the state answer this question.

Grants and Management Projects
Sevenmile and Tenmile Creeks Watershed

Goals

11/25/2014
Identify sources of aquatic ecosystem disturbance, identify management actions to minimize these disturbances, and implement the management practices.

Priorities

11/25/2014
The Wisconsin River TMDL is in this watershed, so working to reduce key pollutants (phosphorus, sediment) identified in the project are high priorities.
11/25/2014
Surface water quantity issues are the highest priority in this watershed. Several waters are being monitored to track the status of baseflow to ascertain the impact human actions are having on streams, springs, and wetlands in the area.

Water Quality Planning
Sevenmile and Tenmile Creek Watershed Planning
Date
Status
The Sevenmile and Tenmile Creek Watershed is located in the counties of Adams, Portage, Wood and Waushara. This watershed is a maze of ditches and laterals that were created to drain lowland areas for agricultural activities. There are large sections of land that have been purchased by the state that are being maintained for grassland ecosystems. Both grazing and pivot irrigation are two land uses that impact the water quality of Sevenmile and Tenmile Creeks Watershed. This watershed was ranked using the Nonpoint Source Priority Watershed Selection Criteria. Based on surface and ground water data, the overall ranking is high, establishing Sevenmile and Tenmile Creek Watershed as a high priority for future grant eligibility through the Nonpoint Source Pollution Abatement Program. The watershed includes the towns of Pine Grove, Grant, and Almond. The Portage County Soil Erosion Control Plan identifies these towns as having excessive soil loss rates due to wind and water erosion. There are several cranberry farms located in the watershed that utilize water for their operation. Water drawn from ditches reduces stream flow, decreases adult fish cover, reduces spawning areas for trout and likely exposes fish redds, and may result in an increase of water temperatures. Discharges from cranberry marshes can adversely affect water temperatures, deposit sediment, and release nutrients to the ditches. Periodic impounding of the ditches to flood marshes may prevent fish migration, increase water temperatures and de-water downstream reaches.

Watershed History Note

In a Sand County Almanac, Aldo Leopold described Central Wisconsin as the "Sand Counties," a fitting name. The landscape is flat to gently rolling with extremely sandy soil. There is not an area defined as the sand counties but Marquette, Waushara, Adams, and parts of Columbia, Portage, Waupaca, and Sauk counties are usually given this designation. The area around the cities of Westfield, Wautoma, and Wild Rose is the heart of the sand counties, particularly for the fly fisherman.
br> These streams run deep and gin clear over sand bottoms. To the untrained eye, these streams tend to be devoid of fish holding structure. However, stream structures are heavily used, deep holes are common particularly along the outside of a bend, and deadfalls and root wads can hold a lot of fish. This area is where stream structures were first devised. (For more information see Robert Hunt's book, Trout Stream Therapy ) The water quality of these streams is excellent and helps support incredible natural reproduction. Wild Brook Trout are the most common fish but natural reproducing browns and even some rainbows can be found.

Watershed History Note

The Sevenmile and Tenmile Creeks watershed is located in the area covered by glacial Lake Wisconsin over 10,000 years ago. What remained after the lake dried up were the sandy soils of the lakebed and the organic mucky soils of the marshes from the lake’s shorelines. Early Wisconsin farmers realized they could drain the marshes to expose the organic soil, straighten the existing streams, and use the water to plant potatoes and sweet corn in the sandy soil. This led to the creation of drainage districts back in the early 1900s. There are now over 200 drainage districts in 31 counties that manage the drainage ditches and have taxing authority. In fact, over one-third of Wisconsin farms are on land that has been drained, or reclaimed from wetlands and marshes.
