Watershed - Otter Creek and Rat River (GB12)
Otter Creek and Rat River Watershed

Details

The Otter Creek and Rat River Watershed lies in southern and central Forest County with a small portion crossing into east-central Marinette County. The watershed is approximately 90,565 acres in size and consists of 140 miles of strreams and rivers, 2,907 acres of lakes and 15,034 acres of wetlands. The watershed is dominated by forests (76%) and is ranked low for nonpoint source issues affecting streams and groundwater. Point source dischargers to surface waters in this watershed include Laona Sanitary District No. 1.

Ecological Landscapes for Otter Creek and Rat River Watershed

Ecological Landscapes

The North Central Forest Ecological Landscape occupies much of the northern third of Wisconsin. Its landforms are characterized by end and ground moraines with some pitted outwash and bedrock controlled areas. Kettle depressions and steep ridges are found in the northern portion. Two prominent areas in this Ecological Landscape are the Penokee-Gogebic Iron Range in the north extending into Michigan, and Timm's Hill, the highest point in Wisconsin (1,951 feet) in the south. Soils consist of sandy loam, sand, and silts. The vegetation is mainly forest, with many wetlands and some agriculture, though the growing season is not as favorable as it is in southern Wisconsin. Lake Superior greatly influences the northern portion of the Ecological Landscape especially during the winter season, producing greater snowfall than in most areas in Wisconsin. The historic vegetation was primarily hemlock-hardwood forest dominated by hemlock, sugar maple, and yellow birch. There were some smaller areas of white and red pine forest scattered throughout the Ecological Landscape, and individual white pines trees were a component of the hemlock-hardwood forest. Harvesting hemlock to support the tanneries was common at the turn of the century, and the species soon became a minor component of forests due to over-harvesting and lack of regeneration. Currently, forests cover approximately 80% of this Ecological Landscape. The northern hardwood forest is dominant, made up of sugar maple, basswood, and red maple, and also including some scattered hemlock and white pine pockets within stands. The aspen-birch forest type group is also relatively abundant, followed by spruce-fir. A variety of wetland community types also are present, both forested and non-forested.

Forest County Silver Lake Assoc: Silver Lake Management Planning Project: The Forest County Silver Lake Association will conduct work to complete a Lake Management Plan in response to managing Eurasian Water Milfoil (EWM). The study components will provide the baseline data to access the lake ecosystem condition, while the stakeholder participation will shed light on the expectation and needs of lake users. This will allow for development of a long-term and implementable plan for Silver Lake.

The project includes the following goals: 1) Involve local stakeholders in the planning process; 2) Conduct spring EWM check (2014); 3) Conduct EWM peak biomass survey (2014); 4) Conduct point -intercept plant survey (2014); 5) Complete native and non-native community mapping; 6) Complete a shoreline and course woody habitat assessment; 7) Complete a watershed assessment; 8) Conduct lake water quality monitoring/evaluation; 9) Compile fisheries data information; 10) Development of a lake management plan (including EWM control options).

Project deliverables: A final report including methodologies and results of the tasks listed above. Management, protection, enhancement alternatives and recommendations should be presented along with continued public education issues. Recommendations for remedial actions and further study options should be included specifically for Silver Lake and its drainage basin.

Specific conditions for this Project: WDNR review of the draft Lake Management Plan; WDNR will be provided electronic and hard copies of all data and or reports/plans generated as a result of this project.

Otter Creek and Rat River Watershed
Otter Creek and Rat River WatershedWatershed History Note

The Town of Laona in Forest County is located within the Otter Creek and Rat River Watershed. In the late 1800s, William Duncan Connor hiked through the area and examined the fine stands of hardwood timber. He purchased 100,000 acres of timber land in Forest County, founding the Connor Lumber and Land Company. During this period the Chicago Northwestern Railroad moved northward into the Laona area. The initial logging of the area occurred between 1900 and 1910. The Connor Lumber and Land Company built its first sawmill in 1901, logging camps were opened and roads were built. Laona began to thrive as railroads steamed their way into northern Wisconsin, and Laona's economy became largely dependent upon the timber industry. An authentic 1916 Vulcan steam engine, actually used by the Connor Lumber and Land Company during early logging operations, is now used to pull the vintage passenger train at the Camp Five Lumberjack Museum.
