Watershed - Beaver Dam River (UR03)
Beaver Dam River Watershed

Details

The Beaver Dam River Watershed is located primarily in Dodge County, with small segments lying in Columbia, Green Lake and Fond du Lac Counties. As in the basin's other watersheds, land use is primarily agricultural (64%), with dairy farming and cash grain cropping predominant. Water quality monitoring indicates that polluted runoff effects are severe on most streams and lakes. Because of this, WDNR selected the watershed as a priority watershed project in 1990 and it began in 1991. Communities with municipal wastewater discharges in the watershed are Beaver Dam, Fox Lake, Randolph, Lowell and Reeseville. The Fox Lake Correctional Institution and four industrial facilities also discharge in the watershed.

Ecological Landscapes for Beaver Dam River Watershed

Ecological Landscapes

The Southeast Glacial Plains Ecological Landscape makes up the bulk of the non-coastal land area in southeast Wisconsin. This Ecological Landscape is made up of glacial till plains and moraines. Most of this Ecological Landscape is composed of glacial materials deposited during the Wisconsin Ice Age, but the southwest portion consists of older, pre-Wisconsin till with a more dissected topography. Soils are lime-rich tills overlain in most areas by a silt-loam loess cap. Agricultural and residential interests throughout the landscape have significantly altered the historical vegetation. Most of the rare natural communities that remain are associated with large moraines or in areas where the Niagara Escarpment occurs close to the surface. Historically, vegetation in the Southeast Glacial Plains consisted of a mix of prairie, oak forests and savanna, and maple-basswood forests. Wet-mesic prairies, southern sedge meadows, emergent marshes, and calcareous fens were found in lower portions of the Landscape. End moraines and drumlins supported savannas and forests. Agricultural and urban land use practices have drastically changed the land cover of the Southeast Glacial Plains since Euro-American settlement. The current vegetation is primarily agricultural cropland. Remaining forests occupy only about 10% of the land area and consist of maple-basswood, lowland hardwoods, and oak. No large mesic forests exist today except on the Kettle Interlobate Moraine which has topography too rugged for agriculture. Some existing forest patches that were formerly savannas have succeeded to hardwood forest due to fire suppression.

The existing land use conditions in the area will be matched to the regulations governing development in the area and deficiencies in lake and shoreland protection will be noted. The information from the study will be used to update the existing zoning and shoreland protection ordinances and to assess the need for a storm water management ordinance in the County, the stormwater management ordinance, if its need is determined, will be written.

Reimbursement requests can be made every three months and must be accompanied by a progress report. Eligible equipment costs for this project must be used only for lake protection.

Equipment such as cameras, video/audio equipment, and computers must be leased to be an eligible project cost.

Deliverables include watershed assessment parameters, an implementation schedule, and a social survey (see application for details). 2. Assess feasibility of constructing wave barrier island to reduce fetch on the lake by creating a model to compare design options. Deliverables include design criteria and cost estimates for future decision making. 3. Monitor water quality and flow at three major tributaries to determine nutrient loading. Results will be compared with WILMs estimates. This will results in identification of legacy impact of previously applied materials to the subwatersheds, possible measures to reduce algae blooms, and a nutrient management plan. 4. Survey and design for a rough fish barrier at Rakes Bay, to be used as a plan for installation. This carp barrier will improve the water quality and aquatic plant community in the bay.

Beaver Dam Lake Improvement Association: Habitat Recovery Beaver Dam Watershed: BDLIA will conduct a variety of planning activities to add detail to their comprehensive lake management plan. 1. Focusing on the Beaver Creek subwatershed, they will conduct detailed surveys and analysis of the watershed, and investigate habitat enhancement on tributary streams. Deliverables include watershed assessment parameters, an implementation schedule, and a social survey (see application for details). 2. Assess feasibility of constructing wave barrier island to reduce fetch on the lake by creating a model to compare design options. Deliverables include design criteria and cost estimates for future decision making. 3. Monitor water quality and flow at three major tributaries to determine nutrient loading. Results will be compared with WILMs estimates. This will results in identification of legacy impact of previously applied materials to the subwatersheds, possible measures to reduce algae blooms, and a nutrient management plan. 4. Survey and design for a rough fish barrier at Rakes Bay, to be used as a plan for installation. This carp barrier will improve the water quality and aquatic plant community in the bay. For complete details of these activities and deliverables, see the project application. Results of this project will be shared with stakeholders via website, newsletter, meetings, and media releases, in addition to special stakeholder meetings.

Beaver Dam River WatershedWatershed History Note

The City of Beaver Dam is located within the Beaver Dam River Watershed in south central Wisconsin. Prior to European and Yankee settlement, Native American peoples, including the Chippewa, Fox, Kickapoo, Sauk, Sioux and Winnebago, lived in this area of rolling prairies and marshes. Native Americans hunted and fished the area, and paid a special reverence to a source of natural spring water which they called the Sacred Springs, found in what is now Swan Park. A number of archaeological sites have been discovered and are being preserved in the area. In the spring of 1841, Thomas Mackie and his family became the first permanent Yankee settlers to the area. The Mackies built a log cabin and were soon joined by other settlers. Beaver were abundant along the streams and river, constructing dams to provide their own habitat and food source. These early settlers recognized the value of damming the Beaver Dam River to use waterpower to run a gristmill and a saw mill, so in 1842 the first in a series of dams was constructed along the river. That year the shallow valley upriver began filling in to create Beaver Dam Lake. By the mid-1850s, local leaders initiated incorporation as the City of Beaver Dam, and in 1856 a city charter was granted. During this period European immigrants from Germany, Ireland, Poland and other nations began to arrive. These immigrants provided much of the workforce for many new industries including breweries, a woolen mill, brick makers, wagon makers, carriage makers and cotton mills, as well as the existing flour mill and saw mill. By the 1870s the opening of the American prairie to settlement brought about a surplus of grain and a sharp decline in the profitability of wheat farming. Wisconsin and neighboring states began a significant agricultural shift from wheat farming to dairying. During this period dairies and cheese factories began to be established throughout the area. In 1879 Dr. G.E. Swan rediscovered the natural spring once revered by local Indians and created a health spa. Beaver Dam hosted a WWII POW camp called Camp Beaver Dam in the summer of 1944. The POW camp held 300 German prisoners of war in a tent city encampment where the Wayland Academy field house now stands. Wayland Academy was founded as a Baptist university, though it is now a non-denominational high school. The cornerstone of Wayland Hall was laid in 1855, marking the beginning of a new institution aimed at increasing the number of Midwestern students at Baptist seminaries. During the 1960s, it became known as Wayland Junior College. After including a middle school in the 1980s, Wayland became the highly regarded college preparatory high school that it is today. It celebrated its sesquicentennial in 2005.
