Watershed - Lower Oconto River (GB03)
Lower Oconto River Watershed

Details

The Lower Oconto River watershed lies in central Oconto County with small portions of the watershed extending into northern Shawano and eastern Menominee counties. The communities of Oconto. Oconto Falls, Gillett and Suring lie within the watershed. Three hydroelectric dams operate in this watershed. The Wisconsin Electric Power company and Scott Paper Company dams at Oconto Falls operate with run-of-river flows. The Oconto Electric cooperative dam at Stiles operates as a modified peaking operation. This watershed ranked medium in the nonpoint source priority watershed selection process. This was primarily due to the lack of nonpoint source water pollution monitoring data.

Ecological Landscapes for Lower Oconto River Watershed

Ecological Landscapes

The western third of the Lower Oconto River Watershed is located in the Northeast Sands Ecological Watershed and the eastern two-thirds are in the Northern Lake Michigan Coastal Ecological Watershed. The Northern Lake Michigan Coastal Ecological Landscape is located in northeastern Wisconsin, and includes Green Bay and the northern part of the Door Peninsula. Its landforms consist of the Niagara escarpment, a prominent dolomite outcropping along the east side of Green Bay, a lacustrine plain along the west side of Green Bay, and ground moraine elsewhere. Low sand dunes and beach ridges that support Great Lakes endemics and many other rare species are found along the Great Lakes shoreline. The influence of Lake Michigan moderates extreme temperatures. Soils are very diverse; in some areas, lacustrine sands are found overlying clays or bedrock within only a few feet of the surface. In the Door Peninsula, soils are typically stony loamy sands to loams. Poorly drained sands are common in the lake plain or in depressions between dunes and beach ridges. On the western side of Green Bay, the ground moraine is composed mostly of moderately well drained, rocky sandy loams, interspersed with lacustrine sands and clays, and peat and muck also common. The Northeast Sands Ecological Landscape occupies a relatively narrow, vertical band of land in northeast Wisconsin. This landscape formed in glacial outwash sand plains (some of them pitted), and has steep outcropping Precambrian bedrock knolls of basalt, rhyolite, or granite. Sandy ground moraines and end moraines are also interspersed in the landscape. Historically, extensive oak/jack pine barrens and jack pine forests were found in the outwash sand portions of this Ecological Landscape. Moraines supported forests of hardwoods, red pine, and white pine. Outwash plains often contained pitted depressions, resulting in numerous wetlands and kettle lakes. Most of this Ecological Landscape is still forested; aspen predominates, followed by northern hardwoods. Jack pine remains on the outwash plains along with northern pin oak. There are several important occurrences of jack pine/oak barren communities. A small percentage of this Ecological Landscape contains spruce-fir-cedar forest and lowland hardwood forest. The Brazeau Swamp is one of the best representations of large cedar swamp forests in northern Wisconsin. Historic vegetation included maple-basswood-beech forest, hemlock-hardwood forest, northern white cedar swamp, hardwood-conifer swamp, wet meadows, and coastal marshes. Conifer dominated upland forests that resemble the boreal forest were present along Lake Michigan; they contain a significant component of white spruce and balsam fir. Cliffs, sinkholes, and dolomite ledges are associated with the Niagara Escarpment. Current vegetation consists of more than 60% non-forested land, most of which is in agricultural crops, with smaller amounts of grassland, wetland, shrubland, and urbanized areas. Forested lands are dominated by maple-basswood, with smaller amounts of lowland hardwoods, aspen-birch, and lowland conifers. High quality areas of exposed alkaline bedrock beach occur on the northern Door Peninsula, providing habitat for many rare plants. Several islands lie off the Door Peninsula and these also provide critical habitat for rare species and colonially nesting birds.

Lower Oconto River WatershedWatershed History Note

The Lower Oconto River played an important role in the lumbering history of Wisconsin. In 1950, Russell Wicke of Suring shared his memories of the annual log drive. The logs were cut in the woods during the winter and when spring came and the ice began to thaw and break on the rivers, the log drive began. Because Suring was located on one of the principal waterways of the log drive in the lumbering area, it became an important center, for logs were driven down the North Branch, the South Branch and the Peshtigo Brook on their way to the sawmills in Oconto. The log drivers were to be quick, daring and rugged men. Armed with peavies, long pike poles, heavy high shoes with calked soles, these woodsmen had to cleverly direct and guide thousands of logs on their slow course from the forest where they were cut to the sawmill where they would be made into lumber. Often times, in spite of the skill of the drivers, the logs would become jammed in the stream, sometimes piling up to the height of seven and eight feet. To break such a jam was difficult and dangerous. Usually there was a key log in the breaking of the jam. To dislodge this log and jump clear of the breaking force behind it required great skill. Sometimes the jam would break loose with a sudden rushing, roaring and driving force that left little time to escape from being swept into the whirling mass of water and logs. An expert driver was able to jump from one whirling log to another and ride those logs in spite of their rapid motion in the stream. The log drivers were followed by large rafts, constructed of logs, on which tents were pitched. One such raft and tent was used as the cook’s shanty while others were sleeping shanties for the log drivers. Sometimes only the cook’s shanty was aboard a raft and the men pitched the tents serving as sleeping quarters on the bank of the stream down which they were driving.
