Watershed - Waupaca River (WR05)
Waupaca River Watershed

Details

The Waupaca River watershed is 292 square miles and lies almost entirely in Portage and Waupaca counties. A small part of its southwestern portion is in Waushara County. The river's name changes as it flows from Portage County to Waupaca County. In Portage County it is called the Tomorrow River. In Waupaca County, it is the Waupaca River, which in its entirety runs approximately 63 miles. The Waupaca River's major tributary, the Crystal River, ties into the system from the south and is included within the planning area and is classified as Class II trout waters. The Crystal River is the outlet to the Chain O" Lakes (Long Lake) which is a very prominent recreational and residential area consisting of 22 interconnected lakes. These lakes comprise approximately 725 acres and is considered as part of the Tomorrow/Waupaca River Priority Watershed Project. Recent changes to the Waupaca County Shoreland Ordinance should improve this resource, from a development standpoint, in the future. The Waupaca River Watershed was selected as a priority watershed project in 1993 and will expire at the end of the year 2007. A priority watershed plan was prepared cooperatively by WDNR, DATCP, NRCS, University of Wisconsin Extension, Portage County Land Conservation Department, Waupaca County Land and Water Conservation Department, and Waushara County Land Conservation Department. The soils, geology and other physical resources of the western 95 percent of this watershed indicate that this area is highly susceptible to groundwater contamination due to poor land use practices (WDNR and WGNHS, 1987). A data search revealed groundwater samples with contamination, mainly pesticides, in this area.

Population, Land Use

Almost half (48%) of the total area of the Waupaca River Watershed is reserved for agricultural use. Forest cover accounts for over a third (35%) of the area. Open water and open space and wetlands each amount to six percent of the watershed’s area, and grassland covers almost three percent. Suburban and urban landscapes are the least common type of land use in the watershed with only two percent and one-half of one percent of the area, respectively.

Nonpoint and Point Sources

Point Sources There are four industrial point source dischargers and four municipal point source dischargers in the Waupaca River Watershed: Village of Amherst, City of Waupaca, Wisconsin DVA Veterans Home, Waupaca Foundry Inc. (plants 1, 2, and 3), City of Weyauwega, Weyauwega Milk Products, and the Weyauwega Star Dairy. CAFOs Gordondale Farms runs a concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO) at 9845 Highway 161 in Nelsonville. This dairy farm has a permit to discharge animal waste water to groundwater. Nonpoint Sources The Waupaca River watershed is ranked as a high priority overall for nonpoint source (NPS) pollution and is similarly ranked for groundwater NPS pollution. Streams within the watershed are listed as a medium priority for NPS pollution and lakes have yet to be ranked. One stormwater management plan was developed for the Village of Amherst. The Tomorrow/Waupaca River Priority Watershed Project plan assesses the nonpoint sources of pollution in the Tomorrow/Waupaca River Watershed and guides the implementation of nonpoint source control measures. These control measures are needed to meet specific water resource objectives for Tomorrow/Waupaca River and its tributaries. The primary objective of the project is to reduce nonpoint source pollution to the Tomorrow/Waupaca River, and to enhance and protect the water quality of streams in the Tomorrow/Waupaca River Watershed. The Tomorrow/Waupaca River Priority Watershed Project has met its goals relative to sediment and phosphorus loading into surface water. However, it continues to struggle with its groundwater goals on the loamy sands and sandy loams within the watershed. It is impossible to determine in the short term if BMPs are reducing N and Soluble P in groundwater because of the inherent variability of groundwater flow. The project continues to work with UWSP to gather water quality data to try and determine BMP effectiveness (Source: Bradley, Steve. Priority Watershed and Priority Lake Program Final Report, 12/30/08).

Ecological Landscapes for Waupaca River Watershed

Ecological Landscapes

The Waupaca River Watershed is located in both the Forest Transition Ecological Landscape and the Central Sand Hills Ecological Landscape. The Forest Transition Ecological Landscape 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. 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.

Hydrologic Features

The geology and hydrology of the Waupaca River Watershed are largely influenced by the glacial history of the region. The watershed is located in an area dominated by glacial moraines and outwash plains of sandy soil. The permeable nature of the soils result in the rapid infiltration of precipitation into the groundwater creating a relatively shallow water table that feeds many of the headwater streams, ponds and wetlands in the region. The shallow, readily available nature of the groundwater has led to much of the watershed being converted to irrigated agriculture. The nature of the agricultural activities in the watershed and the permeability of the soils have created two distinct problems in the region. The intensive groundwater pumping during the growing season can lower the water table and reduce water levels in the groundwater fed lakes and streams of the watershed and the permeable soils readily allow agricultural fertilizers and pesticides to leach into the groundwater and contaminate the aquifer.

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

The Winnebago Comprehensive Management Plan rated this watershed a medium priority due to critical local surface water problems from animal waste. The highest concentrations of livestock in Portage County occur near Amherst on the Tomorrow River. The greatest overall water quality threat in the watershed is excess nutrients (nitrates) entering groundwater. Sources of nitrate include livestock manure and agricultural fertilizers. Nitrate infiltrates into the groundwater due to the high permeability. Sandy soils pose a risk to vulnerable residents (those under six months old) if furnishing drinking water supplies. Over 54 miles of Exceptional Resource Waters can be found along stretches of Allen Creek, Bear Creek, Carden Feeder, Mack Creek, Murry Creek, Naylor Creek, Poncho Creek,Spring Creek, Stedman Creek, Stoltenburg Creek, Upper Spring Creek, and Waupaca River. Another 43 miles of Outstanding Resource Waters are located along segments of Emmons Creek, Radley Creek, the Waupaca River, and an unnamed tributary. A total of about 72 miles of Class I trout streams are also present along sections of Naylor Creek, Radley Creek, Murry Creek, Emmons Creek, Carden Feeder, Stedman Creek, Upper Spring Creek, Mack Creek, Stoltenburg Creek, Allen Creek, Bear Creek, Poncho Creek, Waupaca River, and Spring Creek. Another 38 miles of Class II trout streams are located within the watershed along segments of the Tomorrow/Waupaca River, Bear Creek, Crystal River, and Hartman Creek. According to the WDNR’s Register of Waterbodies (ROW) database, there are 468 miles of rivers and streams in the Waupaca River Watershed; 134 miles of which have been entered into the WDNR’s assessment database. Of these 134 miles, over half (56%) 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. Perennial streams, which have a combined length of about 170 miles, maintain at least a small continuous flow throughout most of the year. The Tomorrow/Waupaca (63 miles) is the longest perennial stream in the watershed. While sections of the Tomorrow/Waupaca River supports a warm water sport fishery, the watershed contains approximately 129 miles of cold water streams, including 110 miles of classified trout waters. The Tomorrow/Waupaca River and many other streams are not reaching their highest potential use due to pollution from nonpoint sources.

Lakes and Impoundments

The WDNR’s ROW database shows that there are over 2,132 acres of lakes and ponds in the Waupaca River Watershed. Rainbow Lake, Long Lake, and Lake Emily are the largest lakes in the watershed at over one hundred acres in size, each. There are also over 514 acres of reservoirs and flowages and another 208 acres of unspecified open water in the watershed. Weyauwega Lake is the largest impoundment in the watershed at over 250 acres in size. A total of 2,788 lake acres has been entered into the state’s assessment database. Of these 2,788 acres, over half (56%) are indicated as supporting Fish and Aquatic Life uses; while another 13% are indicated as not supporting Fish and Aquatic Life uses. The remaining lake acres within the watershed have not been assessed for Fish and Aquatic Life use support. Over 10 acres of impoundments have also been entered into the assessment database, but none have been assessed for Fish and Aquatic Life use or any other uses. In addition, 75 lake acres within the watershed are indicating as not supporting Fish Consumption use; while the remaining lake acres have yet to be assessed for this use designation.

Wetland Health

Wetland Status: The Waupaca River Watershed is located almost entirely in Portage and Waupaca counties. An estimated six percent of the current land uses in the watershed are wetlands. Currently, only 73% of the original wetlands in the watershed are estimated to exist. Of these wetlands, the majority include forested wetlands (66%), scrub wetlands (20%), and emergent wetlands (13%), 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 32% of the existing emergent wetlands, 21% of existing shrub habitat, and three percent of the remaining forested wetlands. Reed canary grass domination inhibits successful establishment of native wetland species. Wetland Restorability: Of the 4,269 acres of estimated lost wetlands in the watershed, approximately 87% are considered potentially restorable based on modeled data, including soil types, land use, and land cover (Chris Smith, DNR, 2009).

Aquatic Invasive Species

Banded mystery snail and Eurasian water-milfoil are pervasive throughout the watershed and can be found in numerous lakes. Chinese mystery snail can be found in Bear Lake, Collins Lake, Lime Lake, Hartman Lake (Allen), and Pope Lake. Curly-leaf pondweed have been verified and vouchered in Emily Lake, Long Lake, Weyauwega Lake, Spring Lake, Amherst Millpond, and Sunset Lake. Furthermore, rusty crayfish have invaded the waters of Columbia Lake (Waupaca Chain), Crystal River, Waupaca River, Amherst Millpond, and Lake Emily. Lake Emily is also home to a milfoil hybrid species.

Fish Consumption Advice

In addition to being on the state’s 303(d) Impaired Waters list, Collins Lake has a specific fish consumption advisory in effect for mercury. The Wolf River upstream to the Shawano Dam has a fish consumption advisory for polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Mercury and PCBs differ in where they come from, where they accumulate in fish, and how they affect human health. Contaminants such as PCBs and mercury build up in the body over time. 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. Mercury affects the human nervous system. Mercury can damage developing brains of children and may affect a child’s behavior and ability to learn. While mercury can be eliminated from the body, frequent ingestion of fish with high levels of mercury results in bioaccumulation (Proposed Guidance For the Classification, Assessment, & Management of Wisconsin Surface Waters, Lowndes & Helmuth, March 12, 2007).

Groundwater

Groundwater quality in the Tomorrow/Waupaca River Watershed is generally considered poor due to high nitrate + nitrite and pesticides. Samples analyzed for nitrate + nitrite showed concentrations as high as 55 parts per million or milligrams per liter (mg/L). From 1994 through 1998, the Tomorrow/Waupaca River Priority Watershed Project worked with willing landowners to establish “Complete Containment Barnyards” (directing barnyard runoff into manure storage) within the watershed with the aim of reducing nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) from reaching surface and groundwater. Traditional filter strips were not used for barnyard runoff because they do not reduce N loading to groundwater, they do not reduce P loading in winter and spring months, and they are rarely maintained properly. These “containment” systems also eliminate P and N from reaching surface and groundwater via winter spread manure, which concentrates and flows to surface water and internally drained areas (direct conduits to groundwater when frost leaves) during spring thaw. Also, these systems eliminate P and N losses to surface and groundwater during summer stockpiling of manure when farmers can’t spread because crops are in the fields. Without very costly water quality monitoring, it is impossible to quantify improvements. Nutrient management using UW nutrient recommendations for N will not provide groundwater protection below the EPA enforcement standard because they are based on economics and not water resource protection (i.e. their recommendations call for more N on loamy sands to make up for the leaching of N). Working with (mostly dairy) farmers, the Department of Natural Resources is implementing nutrient management plans on approximately 17,700 acres and demonstrating profitability, while applying nutrients below UW recommendations. The irrigated vegetable growers have not shown any interest in working with the department to implement nutrient management plans. The high levels of nitrates in groundwater are due to the inefficiency of crops to utilize applied N. Groundwater studies have shown that approximately half of the N applied to cropland is lost to groundwater on crops on loamy sands. Because NR120 does not offer Best Management Practices (BMPs) to address this issue, we need to develop a market for groundwater friendly crops (e.g. Alfalfa pelletization plant, soy oil extraction plant, biofuel processing plant, and/or more dairy livestock) (Source: Bradley, Steve. Priority Watershed and Priority Lake Program Final Report, 12/30/08). The following groundwater information is for Portage and Waupaca Counties (from Protecting Wisconsin’s Groundwater through Comprehensive Planning website, http://wi.water.usgs.gov/gwcomp/), which roughly approximates to the Waupaca River Watershed. The municipal water systems of Amherst, Waupaca, and Weyauwega all have wellhead protection plans in place. Amherst and Waupaca have also developed wellhead protection ordinances. Portage County and Waupaca County have both adopted animal waste management ordinances, as well. Groundwater Use From 1979 to 2005, total water use in Portage County has increased from about 40.0 million gallons per day to about 132 million gallons per day. The increase in total water use over this period is due primarily to increases in irrigation and industrial uses. The proportion of county water use supplied by groundwater has declined from 97% to 89% during the period 1979 to 2005. During the same time period, total water use in Waupaca County has increased from about 9.6 million gallons per day to about 19.2 million gallons per day. The increase in total water use over this period is due to increases in domestic, irrigation, and commercial uses, as well as public use and losses through 2000. By 2005, slight decreases in water use occurred across all categories, except for industrial use, which increased. The proportion of county water use supplied by groundwater has decreased from about 99% to 92% during the period 1979 to 2005. Private Wells A 2002 study estimated that 36% of private drinking water wells in the region of Wisconsin that includes Portage and Waupaca counties contained a detectable level of a herbicide or herbicide metabolite. Pesticides occur in groundwater more commonly in agricultural regions, but can occur anywhere pesticides are stored or applied. A total of 45,527 acres of land in Portage County and 6,490 acres of land in Waupaca County are in atrazine prohibition areas. One hundred percent of 30 private well samples collected in Waupaca County met the health standard for arsenic. No arsenic data were available for Portage County private wells. Potential Sources of Contamination There is one concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO) located within the Waupaca River Watershed. This dairy CAFO can be found in Nelsonville. One licensed landfill can be found within the watershed in Waupaca. No Superfund sites are located within the watershed.

Monitoring & Projects

Projects including grants, restoration work and studies shown below have occurred in this watershed. Click the links below to read through the text. While these are not an exhaustive list of activities, they provide insight into the management activities happening in this watershed.

Volunteer Monitoring

Nine Volunteer Stream Monitoring stations have been monitored by eight volunteers from 2005 through 2010 in WR05-Waupaca River Watershed. Five stations are monitored for biotic index, flow, dissolved oxygen, instantaneous temperature and transparency using Level 1 procedures, and entered in the WAV database (http://www.uwex.edu/erc/wavdb/).

Two of the stations are monitored for dissolved oxygen, pH, instantaneous and continuous temperature and transparency using Level 2 procedures including: The remaining two stations are only monitored to assess continuous temperature. All Level 2 data are entered into the SWIMS database (http://dnrx.wisconsin.gov/swims/welcome.do).

On average, stations in the watershed were monitored monthly from May through October. Volunteers collect macroinvertebrates twice a year (the first and last sampling event of the season) to determine a biotic index for each stream monitored. Streams are considered in poor quality if biotic index is between 1.0-2.0, fair quality if between 2.1-2.5, and in good quality if the index is between 2.6-3.5. Generally, biotic index values in the watershed rated streams in fair to good quality (ranging from 2.25-3.2). Stations along the Waupaca River have a higher flow rate than the nearby creeks with measurements on average of 133.6 cubic feet per second (cfs) and ranging from 58.3-427.4 cfs. Bear and Emmons Creeks measured lower flow throughout the season with an average of 19.7 cfs, ranging from 7.9-34 cfs.

From 2005 through 2010, volunteers recorded dissolved oxygen levels in the watershed sufficient to sustain aquatic life. Levels ranged from 8-15mg/l. Throughout the monitoring seasons, volunteers collected pH measurements primarily within state standards (which range from 6 to 9) ranging from 7.77 to 8.65. Temperature measurements, used to classify streams as cold, cool or warm water habitats, and which are indicative of the ability of a habitat to sustain aquatic species were manually recorded at all Level 1 stations and two of the Level 2 stations.

Generally, maximum instantaneous temperatures were below 25�C for all streams using this method; suggesting they may be cold water streams. Waupaca River at Hwy 22 and the Riverside Park, due west of parking lot, CBSM-10020691 and Waupaca River, 3.2 miles W of Hwy 54/10 & Waupaca, 50 yds downstream from Hwy 10, CBSM-10020689 each had one field event with a temperature reaching 28.9�C on July 31, 2006; suggesting they may be warm water streams. Continuously recorded temperatures were collected at all of the Level 2 stations. Continuously measured temperatures indicated a transition between cool and warm water stream with maximum daily temperatures ranging from 23-25�C between yearly data. Stream transparency measurements primarily indicated good water quality with 100% of measurements less than 10 NTU.

Waupaca River Watershed

Priorities

3/5/2015
Groundwater and surface water interactions and maintenance of baseflow is critical for protecting surface water resources. The nature of the agricultural activities in the watershed and the permeability of the soils have created two distinct problems in the region. The intensive groundwater pumping during the growing season can lower the water table and reduce water levels in the groundwater fed lakes and streams of the watershed and the permeable soils readily allow agricultural fertilizers and pesticides to leach into the groundwater and contaminate the aquifer.

Watershed History Note

Long before the time of Wisconsin's woodland Indians, Native American mound builders roamed the Waupaca area. Later, the first non-Native American settlers to visit the Waupaca Chain of Lakes found many raised earth mounds. These were often shaped like animals. One early explorer counted 72 mounds. Fifty-two of these were around Taylor Lake and included shapes such as humans, turtles, and catfish. The first non-Native American settlers came to the Waupaca area in June 1849. They found a beautiful piece of land that the Indians called "The falls" on the Waupaca River. Menominee and Chippewa tribes had campsites throughout the area, including the sites of today's city hall/library and South Park. Other settlers soon followed. By 1852, a post office had been established and the settlement was officially named "Waupaca". The Village of Waupaca became incorporated on May 4, 1857. Early businesses included flour and saw mills. The City of Waupaca was organized on April 6, 1875. In the early days of automobile travel, the Yellowstone Trail became America's first trans-continental highway, the first highway people could use to drive across the country, from the East Coast to Yellowstone Park. The route was marked with yellow paint on stones, trees, fence posts or other possible visible markers they called "hoodoos". The trail was first made of mud (unpaved). Later it was covered with gravel, and finally paved. It ran along today's Hwy. 10, right through the center of Waupaca.
