Watershed - Somo River (UW35)
Somo River Watershed

Details

The Somo River Watershed is located in Lincoln, Oneida and Price counties. It is 90,435 acres in size and contains 168 miles of streams and rivers, 643 acres of lakes and 31,815 acres of wetlands. The watershed is dominated by forest (52%) and wetlands (35%) and is ranked low for nonpoint source issues affecting water quality.

Ecological Landscapes for Somo River Watershed

Ecological Landscapes

The Somo River Watershed is primarily located in the North Central Forest Ecological Landscape which occupies much of the northern third of Wisconsin. Its landforms are characterized by end and ground moraines with some pitted outwash and bedrock controlled areas. Kettle depressions and steep ridges are found in the northern portion. Two prominent areas in this Ecological Landscape are the Penokee-Gogebic Iron Range in the north extending into Michigan, and Timm's Hill, the highest point in Wisconsin (1,951 feet) in the south. Soils consist of sandy loam, sand, and silts. The vegetation is mainly forest, with many wetlands and some agriculture, though the growing season is not as favorable as it is in southern Wisconsin. Lake Superior greatly influences the northern portion of the Ecological Landscape especially during the winter season, producing greater snowfall than in most areas in Wisconsin. The historic vegetation was primarily hemlock-hardwood forest dominated by hemlock, sugar maple, and yellow birch. There were some smaller areas of white and red pine forest scattered throughout the Ecological Landscape, and individual white pines trees were a component of the hemlock-hardwood forest. Harvesting hemlock to support the tanneries was common at the turn of the century, and the species soon became a minor component of forests due to over-harvesting and lack of regeneration. Currently, forests cover approximately 80% of this Ecological Landscape. The northern hardwood forest is dominant, made up of sugar maple, basswood, and red maple, and also including some scattered hemlock and white pine pockets within stands. The aspen-birch forest type group is also relatively abundant, followed by spruce-fir. A variety of wetland community types also are present, both forested and non-forested.

Friends Of Lake Mohawksin: Lake Mohawksin Ais Control & Prevention Project: Friends of Lake Mohawksin is sponsoring an AIS ACEI grant on Lake Mohawksin in Lincoln County. Project partners include Wisconsin Public Service and Packaging Corp. of America and will focus on EWM management, and AIS education, prevention and monitoring. The goal is to reduce the treatable EWM to less than 50 acres and have a density rating below D=1 which will allow the Friends of Lake Mohawksin to continue management of AIS with minimal state financial assistance. This initial grant will be used to begin implementation of the four year plan.

Project activities include: 1) Annual chemical treatments of EWM; 2) Volunteer hand removal of isolated EWM plants; 3) Annual Pre and Post treatment monitoring and analysis; 4) Kick-off meeting and volunteer AIS training; 5) Annual volunteer monitoring; 6) Recruit volunteers and expand current CB/CW program; 7) Entry of inspection forms 3200-120 and monitoring forms onto Dept website; 8) Point-intercept aquatic plant survey and 1 set of voucher specimens; 9) Develop annual project report and a final report.

Project deliverables include: 1) Chemical and hand removal control of EWM; 2) Pre and post treatment survey data; 3) Completed entry of inspection 3200-120 and monitoring forms onto Dept website; 4) Aquatic plant survey data and 1 set of vouchers; 5) AIS educational, prevention and monitoring activities; 6) A minimum of 100 volunteer hours of monitoring and 400 hours of CB/CW; 7) Final report summarizing EWM management during project and future EWM management suggestions, CB/CW activities, AIS monitoring and educational activities.

Specific Conditions for this project: Final report needs Dept review and approval.

WDNR Lakes Management Coordinator will be provided with an electronic (pdf or word) and hard copy of final report, all annual reports, pre and post treatment survey data, point-intercept data, set of vouchers, and samples of educational and outreach products.
