Watershed - Kewaunee River (TK03)
Kewaunee River Watershed

Details

The Kewaunee River Watershed is located in Kewaunee County and the eastern edge of Brown County and is 91,009 acres in size. It contains 295 miles of streams and rivers and 7,313 acres of wetlands. The watershed is dominated by agriculture (75%) and is ranked high for nonpoint source issues affecting streams and groundwater. Upper reaches of the watershed have forage fisheries because of low flows and warm water temperatures. Most of the remainder of the watershed supports warmwater sport fisheries, although several tributaries and one section of the Kewaunee River are designated as trout fisheries. All perennial streams within the watershed experience seasonal anadromous migrations of trout and salmon from Lake Michigan. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) built and operates an egg collection facility for Lake Michigan trout and salmon on the lower portion of the Kewaunee River. Water quality has been and still remains a major concern within the watershed. Based on watershed models, it is estimated that the Kewaunee River delivers 1,900 tons of sediment per year to Lake Michigan (WDNR 1995). Along with sediment, phosphorus, nitrogen and manure can be found in runoff reaching the Kewaunee River. It was estimated that between 1969 and 1978 the average phosphorus load of the river was 42,000 pounds per year with values ranging from 11,000 lbs/yr to 106,000 lbs/yr (WDNR 1984). Because of high levels of point and nonpoint source pollution, the Kewaunee River was designated as a Priority Watershed in 1982. When the Priority Watershed program ended on the Kewaunee River in 1992, 89 of 300 landowners had agreed to participate in the program. Although low in percentage, participation was average for Priority Watersheds begun in this time period. The effectiveness of phosphorus/sediment reduction practices in this project was never measured.

Population, Land Use

Agriculture is the most common land use in the watershed with almost three-quarters of the total area. Ten percent of the watershed has been identified as wetlands, and forests cover another seven percent. Over three percent of the total area can be described as suburban environments. Open space and open water together with grasslands claim the last sizeable land use percentages for the Kewaunee River Watershed with two percent of the total area, each. Urban landscapes are even scarcer in the watershed with only two-fifths of one percent land cover.

Date  2011

Nonpoint and Point Sources

The Kewaunee River Watershed is ranked as a high priority overall for nonpoint source (NPS) pollution and is similarly ranked for groundwater and stream NPS pollution. Lakes within the watershed, however, are not yet ranked for NPS pollution. Runoff Events Runoff events occur regularly within the Kewaunee River Watershed. This is a significant issue since these runoff events degrade water quality, cause abundant algae growth in the stream, and degrade the fishery. CAFOs Several concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) are located with the Kewaunee River Watershed, including Dairyland Farms, Da-Ran Dairy LLC, Kinnard Farms, Inc., Pagels Ponderosa Dairy, Rolling Hills Dairy Farm, Stahl Bros. Dairy LLC, and Stahl Farms. These dairy farms all have permits to discharge animal waste water to the ground, and ultimately to groundwater.

Ecological Landscapes for Kewaunee River Watershed

Ecological Landscapes

The Kewaunee River Watershed is located within the Central Lake Michigan Coastal Ecological Landscape which stretches from southern Door County west across Green Bay to the Wolf River drainage, then southward in a narrowing strip along the Lake Michigan shore to central Milwaukee County. Owing to the influence of Lake Michigan in the eastern part of this landscape, summers there are cooler, winters warmer, and precipitation levels greater than at locations farther inland. Dolomites and shales underlie the glacial deposits that blanket virtually all of the Central Lake Michigan Coastal Ecological Landscape. The dolomite Niagara Escarpment is the major bedrock feature, running across the entire landscape from northeast to southwest. Series of dolomite cliffs provide critical habitat for rare terrestrial snails, bats, and specialized plants. The primary glacial landforms are ground moraine, outwash, and lakeplain. The topography is generally rolling where the surface is underlain by ground moraine, variable over areas of outwash, and nearly level where lacustrine deposits are present. Important soils include clays, loams, sands, and gravels. Certain landforms, such as sand spits, clay bluffs, beach and dune complexes, and ridge and swale systems, are associated only with the shorelines of Lake Michigan and Green Bay. Historically, most of this landscape was vegetated with mesic hardwood forest composed primarily of sugar maple, basswood, and beech. Hemlock and white pine were locally important, but hemlock was generally restricted to cool moist sites near Lake Michigan. Areas of poorly drained glacial lakeplain supported wet forests of tamarack, white cedar, black ash, red maple, and elm, while the Wolf and Embarrass Rivers flowed through extensive floodplain forests of silver maple, green ash, and swamp white oak. Emergent marshes and wet meadows were common in and adjacent to lower Green Bay, while Lake Michigan shoreline areas featured beaches, dunes, interdunal wetlands, marshes, and highly diverse ridge and swale vegetation. Small patches of prairie and oak savanna were present in the southwestern portion of this landscape.

Hydrologic Features

The historic removal of forests and wetlands from the landscape have resulted in a watershed that lacks adequate opportunities for infiltration and retention of precipitation and snow melt, resulting in flashy runoff which overwhelms existing stream channels and aquatic habitat. This excessive runoff also strips valuable sediments and nutrients from the terrestrial environment and delivers them to our streams and lakes where they result in degraded water quality and poor habitat. This degradation of aquatic resources leads to the extirpation of sensitive fish and aquatic invertebrates and makes the waters more susceptible to invasive species. Flashy runoff also limits the amount of water available to sustain adequate flows during drought. Restoration efforts should focus on increasing the overall percentage of forests and wetlands in this watershed to restore a more natural hydrologic regime and minimize the impacts of flashy runoff and an altered hydrologic regime.

Kewaunee River Watershed At-a-Glance

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

According to the WDNR’s Register of Waterbodies (ROW) database, there are over 294 miles of streams and rivers in the Kewaunee River Watershed; 97 miles of these waters have been entered into the WDNR’s assessment database. Of these 97 miles, over half (55%) are meeting Fish and Aquatic Life uses and are specified as in “good” condition. The condition of the remaining stream miles is not known or documented. Little Scarboro Creek, Casco Creek, and Rogers Creek contain a total of four miles of Class I trout streams, and over four miles of Class II trout streams can be found along segments of Scarboro Creek and Casco Creek. All of Rogers Creek (0.8 miles) and the lower 0.4 miles of Casco Creek are considered Exceptional Resource Waters. About two miles of Outstanding Resource Waters can be found in the lower reaches of Little Scarboro Creek. The Kewaunee River, Harbor, and Marsh suffer from chronic aquatic toxicity from unspecified metals. Fish tissue from these waters has also been found to be contaminated by PCBs. Rusty crayfish have been discovered along sections of Casco Creek, Kewaunee River, Scarboro Creek, and School Creek.

Lakes and Impoundments

The WDNR’s ROW database shows that there are nine acres of lakes and ponds, over four acres of reservoirs and flowages, and another 67 acres of unspecified open water in the Kewaunee River Watershed. A total of 19 lake acres has been entered into the state’s assessment database. Of these 19 acres, six acres are indicated as supporting Fish and Aquatic Life uses. The remaining lake acres within the watershed have not been assessed for Fish and Aquatic Life use support.

Wetland Health

Wetland Status: The Kewaunee River Watershed, located in Kewaunee County and the western edge of Brown County, is 90,956 acres in size. An estimated seven percent of the current land uses in the watershed are wetlands. Currently, only 64% of the original wetlands in the watershed are estimated to exist. Of these wetlands, the majority include forested wetlands (72%), scrub (14%), and emergent wetlands (12%), which include marshes and wet meadows. Wetland Condition: Little is known about the condition of the remaining wetlands but estimates of reed canary grass (RCG) infestations, an opportunistic aquatic invasive wetland plant, into different wetland types has been estimated based on satellite imagery. This information shows that reed canary grass dominates 17% of the existing emergent wetlands and 1% of the remaining forested wetlands. Reed canary grass domination inhibits successful establishment of native wetland species. Wetland Restorability: Of the 3,623 acres of estimated lost wetlands in the watershed, approximately 94% are considered potentially restorable based on modeled data, including soil types, land use and land cover (Chris Smith, DNR, 2009).

Impaired Waters

The entire stretch of the Kewaunee River is listed as impaired from polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), which are a class of organic compounds used in a wide variety of manufacturing processes and in electrical transformers. The use of PCBs in new applications is no longer possible, but historical discharges or dumping of PCBs throughout the U.S. has resulted in contamination of river bottoms where PCBs attach to sediment and are redistributed when the sediment is disturbed. Organic contaminants are bioaccumulating substances, which means that they are stored in the fat of animals, such as fish, and transferred to predators, such as humans. The Kewaunee Harbor and Kewaunee River and Marsh are all also listed on the 303(d) list for arsenic. The source of these contaminants is not yet known.

List of Impaired Waters

Aquatic Invasive Species

Sawmill Creek hosts a population of rusty crayfish and three - spine sticklebacks have been documented in Mud Branch since 2003. It is important to keep in mind that many invasive species of fish have become naturalized in Lake Michigan and are now a critical part of the forage base. As this watershed discharges into Lake Michigan, there are constant influxes of invasive species from the Great Lakes.

Date  2011

Fish Consumption Advice

Wisconsin’s fish consumption advisory is based on the work of public health, water quality, and fisheries experts from eight Great Lakes states. Based on the best available scientific evidence, these scientists determined how much fish is safe to eat over a lifetime based on the amount of contaminants found in the fish and how those contaminants affect human health. Advisories are based on concentrations of the following contaminants along with angler habits, fishing regulations, and other factors. Kewaunee River and Lake Michigan have had a specific fish consumption advisories in effect for polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) since 2009. Studies indicate the people exposed to PCBs are at greater risk for a variety of health problems. Infants and children of women who have eaten a lot of contaminated fish may have lower birth weights and be delayed in physical development and learning. PCBs may affect reproductive function and the immune system and are also associated with cancer risk. Once eaten, PCBs are stored in body fat for many years. Each time you ingest PCBs the total amount of PCB in your body increases (Lowndes & Helmuth. Proposed Guidance For the Classification, Assessment, & Management of Wisconsin Surface Waters, March 12, 2007).

Groundwater

Kewaunee County, which roughly approximates to the Kewaunee River Watershed, has an abundant supply of groundwater for domestic, municipal, and industrial uses. Groundwater is water which occupies pores, cavities, or crevices in glacial deposits or bedrock. The depth at which these empty spaces become saturated with water varies geographically. The depth to the water table varies throughout the county from less than 10 feet to over 30 feet. Groundwater supplies in the county are derived from three sources. These sources include the unconsolidated surficial materials deposited by glacial ice, the Silurian dolomite aquifer, and the St. Peter and Cambrian sandstone aquifer. Kewaunee County lies in an area of the state classified as having shallow “karst” topography. This type of topography is characterized by shallow soil depth (five feet or less) to the underlying Niagara Dolomite (limestone) bedrock. In most landscapes, rivers flow across the surface of the land. However, in karst landscapes, rainwater and snowmelt readily flows downward through joints in permeable limestone rocks and invisibly attacks them over time through a solution process called “carbonation”. Carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and soil combines with falling rain and snowmelt to form a weak carbonic acid that dissolves calcium carbonate, the main component of limestone. In carboniferous limestone, this process enlarges vertical and horizontal joints and creates complex underground channels. These channels provide easy conduits for transporting unfiltered groundwater contaminants, such as sediment, chlorides, nitrates, bacteria, and other microorganisms to local drinking water aquifers (Kewaunee County Land & Water Resource Management Plan Executive Summary, 2010 - 2019). No municipal water systems located within the Kewaunee River Watershed have developed a wellhead protection plan thus far. Kewaunee County and Brown County (into which part of the watershed extends), however, have both adopted animal waste management ordinances. From 1979 to 2005, total water use in Kewaunee County has fluctuated from about 2.7 million gallons per day to 5.0 million gallons per day. The fluctuations in total water use over this period are due to fluctuations of usage in all categories, with an increase in aquaculture in 2005. The proportion of county water use supplied by groundwater has been consistently above 96% during the period 1979 to 2005. Private Wells Ninety-six percent of 126 private well samples collected in Kewaunee County from 1990 through 2006 met the health-based drinking water limit for nitrate-nitrogen. Land use affects nitrate concentrations in groundwater. An analysis of over 35,000 Wisconsin drinking water samples found that drinking water from private wells was three times more likely to be unsafe to drink due to high nitrate in agricultural areas than in forested areas. High nitrate levels were also more common in sandy areas where the soil is more permeable. In Wisconsin’s groundwater, 80% of nitrate inputs originate from manure spreading, agricultural fertilizers, and legume cropping systems. The areas of fractured dolomite or karstic bedrock in the Kewaunee River Watershed are especially susceptible to groundwater contamination from both rural and urban influences. These geologically sensitive areas have high bedrock and thin soils that have limited ability to filter surface water contaminants prior to water entering drinking water aquifers. A 2002 study estimated that 33% of private drinking water wells in the region of Wisconsin that includes Kewaunee County contained a detectable level of an herbicide or herbicide metabolite. Pesticides occur in groundwater more commonly in agricultural regions, but can occur anywhere pesticides are stored or applied. There are no atrazine prohibition areas in Kewaunee County. All 31 private well samples collected in Kewaunee County met the health standard for arsenic. Potential Sources of Contamination There are seven concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) in the Kewaunee River Watershed spread among the communities of Casco, Kewaunee, Luxemburg, West Kewaunee, and New Franken. The Kewaunee County SW Balefill and Compost Site in West Kewaunee is the only licensed landfill in the watershed. No Superfund sites are located within the watershed.

Kewaunee River Watershed

Goals

12/8/2011
Water Quality Goals Water quality goals for the watershed include: • Minimizing agricultural runoff from rural areas • Minimizing urban stormwater runoff • Protecting groundwater resources • Restoring key wetlands and forestlands for water quality improvement and protection • Establishing riparian buffers to protect water quality • Monitoring and controlling non-native invasive species • Minimizing fish passage barriers • Obtaining water quality and biological monitoring data to adequately assess water resource conditions • Increasing citizens’ watershed awareness, understanding and stewardship activities

Priorities

12/8/2011
Priorities Issues Priority issues for this watershed include the quantity and quality of agricultural runoff reaching surface waters and groundwater, and its impact on drinking water and surface water quality. Protecting groundwater in this area of fractured dolomite or karstic bedrock is important where agricultural land use and urban development can have potentially serious effects on water resources. Additional issues for this watershed include invasion by non-native invasive species, the presence of dams and other fish passage barriers, loss of forests and wetlands and the need for riparian vegetation buffers, runoff from urban areas, and the lack of water quality and biological assessment data.

Watershed History Note

The Villages of Luxemburg and Casco can be found in the Kewaunee River Watershed. Luxemburg was settled in the 1850's by Europe and Germany settlers. Edward Decker conceived the idea of connecting the two cities of Sturgeon Bay and Green Bay with a rail line. It was through his efforts that the Ahnapee & Western Railway Company was formed and came through the village of Luxemburg, bringing the community growth and new business opportunities. The line passed through wooded areas, and "swampers" cleared the brush and felled trees. The former railroad bed is now home to the Ahnapee biking and hiking trail. The watershed is also home to the C. D. "Buzz" Besadny Fish and Wildlife Area which was established in 1957 to manage fish and wildlife resources associated with the Kewaunee River and surrounding landscape. The property is located in eastern Kewaunee County and contains one of the largest wetland complexes bordering Lake Michigan as well as one of the largest remaining blocks of forest in the county.
