Watershed - Hay River (LC05)
Hay River Watershed

Details

This watershed contains 21 lakes larger than 10 acres with a combined area of 2,501 acres. Eight lakes exhibit winterkill characteristics and thus have marginal fishery and water quality-related recreational values and are managed as primarily wildlife and/or aesthetic waters. Fish tissue monitoring for mercury has been conducted on five lakes in this watershed, resulting in the listing of Beaver Dam Lake and Spring Lake on the fish advisory and monitoring is a priority activity for Big Moon, Camelia and Kirby Lakes.

Ecological Landscapes for Hay River Watershed

Ecological Landscapes

The Hay River Watershed is located primarily in the Forest Transition Ecological Landscape which lies along the northern border of Wisconsin's Tension Zone, through the central and western part of the state, and supports both northern forests and agricultural areas. The central portion of the Forest Transition lies primarily on a glacial till plain deposited by glaciation between 25,000 and 790,000 years ago. The eastern and western portions are on moraines of the Wisconsin glaciation. The growing season in this part of the state is long enough that agriculture is viable, although climatic conditions are not as favorable as in southern Wisconsin. Soils are diverse, ranging from sandy loam to loam or shallow silt loam, and from poorly drained to well drained. The historic vegetation of the Forest Transition was primarily northern hardwood forest. These northern hardwoods were dominated by sugar maple and hemlock, and contained some yellow birch, red pine and white pine. Currently, over 60% of this Ecological Landscape is non-forested. Forested areas consist primarily of northern hardwoods and aspen, with smaller amounts of oak and lowland hardwoods. The eastern portion of the Ecological Landscape differs from the rest of the area in that it remains primarily forested, and includes some ecologically significant areas. Throughout the Ecological Landscape, small areas of conifer swamp are found near the headwaters of streams, and associated with lakes in kettle depressions on moraines. Ground flora show characteristics of both northern and southern Wisconsin, as this Ecological Landscape lies along the Tension Zone.

Impaired Water in Hay River Watershed
River and Stream QualityAll Waters in Watershed

A study conducted from 1989 to 1990 to determine the controllable sources of phosphorus entering Tainter Lake, found that about 94 percent of the Hay River phosphorus load was controllable. The phosphorus originating from sources of polluted runoff accounted for about 76 percent of the load, and that from point source discharges about 20 percent (Schreiber, 1992).

Lakes and Impoundments

Three lake management districts have formed in the watershed and all three organizations are currently involved in lake management planning/protection grant studies. Five lakes have active volunteers engaged in the self-help lake monitoring program. This activity is recommended for an additional five lakes on which there is little data. According to NR107, which defines the Aquatic Plant Management program, sensitive areas are "areas of aquatic vegetation identified by the department as offering critical or unique fish and wildlife habitat, including seasonal or lifestage requirements, or offering water quality or erosion control benefits to the body of water." This official designation affects permitted activities such as aquatic plant management permits for chemical treatment and permits issued by the Bureau of Water Regulation and Zoning. Areas of lakes with critical and/or unique aquatic habitat are agreed upon and defined by staff from water resources, fisheries management, wildlife management, and water regulation and zoning. The lakes identified in this watershed for sensitive area designation analysis were chosen due to one or more of the following conditions: intensive recreational use, existing or potential shoreline development, abundant aquatic plants, and/or a history of aquatic plant management. The following lakes have been identified as needing sensitive area designation analysis: Beaver Dam, Big Moon, Kirby, Little Moon, Lower Turtle, and Upper Turtle Lakes.

Hay River WatershedWatershed History Note

The City of Cumberland in Barron County is surrounded by Beaver Dam Lake in the Hay River Watershed. The lake was originally called Che-wa-cum-ma-towan-gok by the Chippewa-Ojibwa people and meant “lake of the beavers”. This deep and meandering lake surrounds the community and thus Cumberland is known as “The Island City”. One of the first settlers was Gunder O. Dahlby, who built a cabin in 1874. The first post office was established in 1876, followed by a school in 1877. The community was officially named Cumberland in 1879, a library opened in the city council rooms in 1989 and an opera house opened in 1903. The first library building was constructed in 1905 through the Andrew Carnegie library program.
