Watershed - Pine and Willow Rivers (WR02)
Pine and Willow Rivers Watershed

Details

The Pine River and Willow Creek watershed is the southernmost watershed of the Wolf River Basin and is located in Waupaca, Waushara and Winnebago counties. This watershed covers 286 square miles. This watershed drains directly to Lake Poygan, and the surface water drainage from the majority of this watershed is filtered by the Poygan Marsh Wildlife Area. The soils, geology and other physical resources of this watershed's western half indicate the area is highly susceptible to groundwater contamination from poor land use practices (WDNR and WGNHS, 1987) The Pine River Willow Creek Watershed was selected as a priority watershed in 1995, and will expire at the end of the year 2009. The priority watershed plan was prepared cooperatively by the WDNR, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP), the Waushara County Land Conservation Department, the Winnebago Land and Water Conservation Department, with assistance from the University of Wisconsin-Extension, and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).

Population, Land Use

The City of Wautoma and the Towns of Dakota, Marion and Wautoma recently contracted with East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission to develop a cooperative land use/development plan. The map based plan will inventory resources, identify patterns, trends and needs, and offer recommendations for areas for growth. The four communities recognize the benefits of joint planning as they deal with increasing concerns about municipal services (including sewer service) and future growth. This planning initiative provides the communities with an opportunity to take steps to protect the water resources in their area. Those portions of the watershed within Winnebago County are located in the Lower Fox River Designated Planning Area.

Nonpoint and Point Sources

There are five municipal point source dischargers and four industrial point source dischargers in the Pine River and Willow Creek Watershed. They are: Lauritzen Inc., Leach Farms, North Lake Poygan Sanitary District, Poygan Sanitary District No. 1, Poysippi Sanitary District, Redgranite Village, Ripon Pickle Company, Wild Rose Village, and the WDNR Wild Rose Fish Hatchery.

Date  1996

Nonpoint and Point Sources

Pine River and Willow Creek are clear, hardwater streams that drain the center two-thirds of Waushara County. Substantial critical animal waste problems affect the eastern half of this watershed, though detailed inventories are needed. Soil erosion, at rates above 2 tons per acre per year, combined with local animal waste delivery and in-stream erosion have accelerated the deterioration of trophic status of millponds on the Pine River and Willow Creek. WDNR Water Resources Management staff should conduct basin assessment trend stream monitoring on Willow Creek and Pine River to assess long term water quality trends in the Wolf River Basin, and to provide data for determining effluent limitations for the wastewater treatment plant and the fish hatchery. This watershed ranked "high" as a priority for streams and "medium" as a priority for groundwater under the Nonpoint Source Priority Watershed selection process. Insufficient data on lakes in this watershed prevented their inclusion in this round of priority watershed rankings. The Winnebago Comprehensive Management Plan rated this watershed a high priority for corrective measures due to critical animal waste problems and in-stream erosion. The data search for the Wolf River Basin Plan indicates polluted runoff-related problems, with excess vegetation and habitat deterioration.

Ecological Landscapes for Pine and Willow Rivers Watershed

Ecological Landscapes

The Pine and Willow Rivers Watershed is covered primarily by two ecological landscapes: the Central Sands Hills and the Southeast Glacial Plains. The Central Sand Hills Ecological Landscape is located in central Wisconsin at the eastern edge of what was once Glacial Lake Wisconsin. The landforms in this Ecological Landscape are a series of glacial moraines that were later partially covered by glacial outwash. The area is characterized by a mixture of farmland, woodlots, wetlands, small kettle lakes, and cold water streams, all on sandy soils. The mosaic of glacial moraine and pitted outwash throughout this Ecological Landscape has given rise to extensive wetlands in the outwash areas, and the headwaters of coldwater streams that originate in glacial moraines. The growing season is long enough for agriculture but the sandy soils limit agricultural productivity somewhat. Historic upland vegetation consisted of oak-forest, oak savanna, and tallgrass prairie. Fens were common in this Ecological Landscape and occurred along with wet-mesic prairie, wet prairie, and rare coastal plain marshes. Current vegetation is composed of more than one-third agricultural crops, and almost 20% grasslands with smaller amounts of open wetland, open water, shrubs, barren, and urban areas. The major forested type is oak-hickory, with smaller amounts of white-red-jack pine, maple-basswood, lowland hardwoods, aspen-birch, and spruce-fir. 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.

Pine and Willow Rivers WatershedWatershed History Note

The Village of Redgranite in Waushara County is located in the Pine and Willow Rivers Watershed. The area was called Sand Prairie in the late 1800s and had been settled as farm land. However, boulders of hard reddish rock, extending from the yellow sand, were found to be mahogany-red granite. In 1889, six quarrymen from Berlin, Wisconsin, investigated the granite ledge and decided to buy it. The stone turned out to be ideal for use as paving blocks in the cities of Chicago and Milwaukee, as it held up better than the brick or cedar blocks which were being used. In 1904 Redgranite was incorporated as a village and from 1905 to 1918, the village boomed as paving cutters and quarrymen of all nationalities descended on the village to work at the numerous quarries. During those boom days, Redgranite was the largest village in Waushara County and had close to 2,000 inhabitants. The school system was first class, including a high school with all college graduate teachers, before that was a requirement. About 25 railcar loads of paving blocks were shipped out each day during the spring and fall seasons. Eventually, concrete and asphalt took over the paving business and paving blocks became a thing of the past. By the 1920s only stone for buildings, monuments, and riprap for Great Lakes breakwaters was being quarried. When the Great Depression came, the "boom" village was hit hard and quarrying halted. But the old quarries now provide a swimming hole to cool off in on a hot summer's day.
