Watershed - North Fork Clam River (SC13)
North Fork Clam River Watershed

Details

The North Fork Clam River Watershed is located mainly in southeastern Burnett County but also includes small portions of Washburn, Barron and Polk Counties. It is approximately 111,044 acres in size and contains 232 miles of streams and rivers, 3,279 acres of lakes and 12,359 acres of wetlands. The watershed is dominated by forest (53%) and grassland (23%), and is ranked low for nonpoint source issues affecting water bodies. The North and South Forks of the Clam River are classified as outstanding resource waters and six additional trout streams in the watershed are proposed for designation as outstanding resource waters.

Ecological Landscapes for North Fork Clam River Watershed

Ecological Landscapes

The North Fork Clam River watershed is primarily located 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.

Sand Lake Management District: Sand Lake Eurasian Water Milfoil Treatment: The Sand Lake Management District is sponsoring a three year aquatic invasive species (AIS) project for Sand Lake to control or eradicate Eurasian Water Milfoil (EWM) including an early season, large-scale herbicide treatment of established beds of EWM in 2006, and post-treatment monitoring through 12/31/2008 to determine the initial treatment effectiveness and its impact on target and non-target species. Included with the post monitoring is the potential for re-treatment or spot treatment of missed or reemerging EWM. Efforts at preventing new AIS infestations into Sand Lake will be addressed with an education program for lake residents via the district newsletter. Bouy markers will be placed in the lake to delineate the current boundaries of existing beds of EWM for both herbicide application and lake users.

Chemical treatment will be conducted in accordance with guidelines provided in a DNR approved Aquatic Plant Management (APM) Plan. All appropriate DNR APM protocols will be followed. Post monitoring will be completed by a professional entity with the support of Sand Lake Management District volunteers. Re-treatment, spot treatment, or other treatments will be completed as necessary provided impact on non-target species is minimal and they are approved in the APM Plan.

Special conditions for this project: 1. The grant sponsor must include a DNR approved watercraft inspection program at the public access site on Sand Lake beginning in early summer 2006 and lasting through the projects completion in 2008. 2. The sponsor shall immediately report any new AIS infestation to an appropriate DNR representative.

Project Deliverables:
Treatment and follow-up results will be provided to the DNR Lake Coordinator and DNR APM Coordinator for review and comments. A Final report including copies of newsletter(s), results of the watercraft inspection program and treatment summaries shall be proved in paper and electronic (.pdf) form.
