Ecological Landscapes for Lily River Watershed

Ecological Landscapes

The North Central Forest Ecological Landscape 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.

Pickerel/Crane Lake Rehabilitation District: Pickerel/Crane Lakes Septic Systems Evaluation: The Pickerel/Crane Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District proposes to inspect and correct pollution problems from failing septic systems. Project activities include the inspection of at least 50 of the oldest septic systems in the lake district for signs of failure. The results will be reported to the county zoning adminstrator for follow-up compliance. A final report will be prepared including the inspection results and a list of failed systems and their locations. A paper copy and an electronic copy of the final report will be provided to the Department of Natural Resources. Information on the project results will be disseminated to the public by newsletter, public meeting, and individual reports mailed to property owners. end.

Town Of Elcho: Restoring Aquatic Connectivity On The Hunting River: The Town of Elcho is sponsoring a project to restore aquatic connectivity to the Hunting River.

Project final deliverables include: Post construction monitoring would occur to document changes in water levels and flows after the new road crossing is installed. Success would be documented in part by comparing the water velocities, flow characteristics, and riverbed composition at the new road crossing to make sure they match the conditions in the natural river channel at a natural reference reach beyond the influence of the road. A stream and water elevation profile would also be tied to the local benchmarks to document the elimination of the impounding condition as well as culvert perch to allow for reestablishment of natural channel morphology and sediment transport. Instream water monitoring device data would also be evaluated to document any changes in upstream water temperatures.

Specific project activities include: To design a road stream crossing that will meet the deliverables above and to replace the current culverts with an adequately sized and set road crossing during the 2016 field season.

Specific conditions for this Project: The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) will be provided electronic and hard copies of all data and or reports/plans generated as a result of this project.
