Watershed - Balsam Branch (SC05)
Balsam Branch Watershed

Details

The Balsam Branch watershed is situated in central Polk County and is 66,605 acres in size. It includes 63 miles of rivers and streams, 6,301 acres of lakes and 5,248 acres of wetlands. The watershed is dominated by forest (29%), grassland (27%) and agriculture (25%) and is ranked high for nonpoint source issues affecting lakes, streams and groundwater. This watershed contains many significant surface waters and consists of mixed agricultural, recreational and urban development. Water quality is impacted by sedimentation and nutrient runoff from agriculture, shoreline development, and road construction and maintenance.

Ecological Landscapes for Balsam Branch Watershed

Ecological Landscapes

The Forest Transition Ecological Landscape 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.

Technical assistance, including landscaper and volunteer training and compliance/certification visits; shoreline restoration, rain garden, and infiltration pit/trench demonstration sites; promotion and education; and incentive payments are included in the program.

All enrolled shoreline restoration parcels require a Department approved restrictive covenant that permanently establishes the vegetative buffer on the parcel. Restorations will follow standards set forth in NR 191.24(3) unless mutually agreed to in writing with the regional lake coordinator before implementation occurs. The program also includes runoff BMPs such as rain gardens and infiltration trenches. Maintenance, operation, and protection will be specified in a ten-year contract for each BMP site. The Department may perform site inspection and/or monitoring.

Project deliverables include: final shoreline restoration plans/maps for sites where implementation is funded by the grant; pre/post photos of funded restorations; list of property owners and parcels committed to restrictive covenants or copies of signed covenants; project accomplishment/challenges summary; educational materials developed; and survey/evaluation results.

This scope is intended to summarize the detailed project scope provided in the application and does not supersede those application tasks/deliverables.

Wapogasset/Bear Trap Lake Improvement Distri: Res-Bear Trap Lake Alum Treatment: The Lake Wapogasset & Bear Trap Lake Sanitary District is proposing to conduct an aluminum sulfate (alum) application to the waters of Bear Trap Lake in Polk County. This lake management procedure has been recommended in a previous Lake Management Planning Grant project report as a method to decrease the level of late summer phosphorus concentrations in the lake due to the in-lake recycling of nutrients from the bottom sediments. The alum will be applied to the lake surface via a barge with surface application spray bars.

This grant application proposes treating two lake areas; (1) the area with water depth of 5 to 15 feet is proposed to be treated with a dosage rate of 5.1 ppm alum, and (2) the lake area with depths of greater than 15 feet to be treated at a dosage rate of 40 g. alum/ sq. m.. The Department of Natural Resources has determined that the treatment of the 5 to 15 foot depth area is ineligible for Lake Protection Grant cost sharing, because of a review panel consensus opinion that the effectiveness of alum for controlling phosphorus release from shallow, oxic lake sediments has not been well documented.

The application of alum will be restricted to a time period from July 15 to freeze up and the Lake Wapogasset & Bear Trap Lake Sanitary District must notify the Department of their treatment plans at least two days prior to application. The District must submit a report to the Department, after treatment, detailing the time of treatment, locations covered, rate of treatment, and total amount of alum applied.

Wapogasset/Bear Trap Lake Improvement Distri: Res-Wapogasset Lake Alum Treatment: The Lake Wapogasset & Bear Trap Lake Sanitary District is proposing to conduct an aluminum sulfate (alum) application to the waters of Wapogasset Lake in Polk County. This lake management procedure has been recommended in a previous Lake Management Planning Grant project report as a method to decrease the level of late summer phosphorus concentrations in the lake due to the in-lake recycling of nutrients from the bottom sediments. The alum will be applied to the lake surface via a barge with surface application spray bars.

This grant application proposes treating two lake areas; (1) the area with water depth of 5 to 15 feet is proposed to be treated with a dosage rate of 5.1 ppm alum, and (2) the lake area with depths of greater than 15 feet to be treated at a dosage rate of 40 g. alum/ sq. m.. The Department of Natural Resources has determined that the treatment of the 5 to 15 foot depth area is ineligible for Lake Protection Grant cost sharing, because of a review panel consensus opinion that the effectiveness of alum for controlling phosphorus release from shallow, oxic lake sediments has not been well documented.

The application of alum will be restricted to a time period from July 15 to freeze up and the Lake Wapogasset & Bear Trap Lake Sanitary District must notify the Department of their treatment plans at least two days prior to application. The District must submit a report to the Department, after treatment, detailing the time of treatment, locations covered, rate of treatment, and total amount of alum applied.

Balsam Branch WatershedWatershed History Note

The area in and around Balsam Lake was originally inhabited by the Chippewa Indians. They referred to the area as "Innenehinduc", which means "place of the evergreen". This may have been due to the large amount of Canadian Yew, an evergreen shrub, which grew in abundance there. The town was organized on January 8, 1870, and was named after the lake that lay within its borders. The first businesses included a blacksmith shop, a bank, a creamery, two sawmills, a hardware store, and a general store. Governmental buildings included a courthouse and a log schoolhouse. Today, Balsam Lake is the home of the Polk County Government Center. The town celebrates its history, and the history of the United States, with its annual Freedom Festival, which takes place on the Thursday through Sunday surrounding the Fourth of July.
