River initiatives


River planning

River planning teams are working throughout Wisconsin to identify high priorities for monitoring, management and protection of the state’s Rivers and streams. The Department and partner groups regularly update Water Quality Management Plans, which outline land and water conditions in river and lake basins statewide. These plans are designed to identify resource protection measures to ensure the healthy long–term management of Wisconsin's Rivers and streams. The data for these plans are updated on an ongoing basis.
