The Water Condition Viewer (WCV) is an interactive mapping tool that focuses on water condition, monitoring, assessment and management data. Highlights include: Clean Water Act data, Monitoring Projects, Healthy Watersheds Assessments, Targeted Watershed Assesssments, Wastewater Evaluation, and Watershed Planning. New layers include County Land and Water Plans and Nine Key Element Plans, and more.

Launch Water Condition Viewer

The Water Condition Viewer (WCV) shares monitoring, assessment and planning data from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. All datasets from specialized themes are available from this "generalized" set of layers.

Launch Monitoring Stations and Projects

Monitoring Stations and Projects shows the locations, stations, and tools used in monitoring projects in Wisconsin. This theme also provides a new tool, the Targeted Watershed Site Selection Tool (TWSST) to support decision making for monitoring study design. The TWSST helps biologists select appropriate sites for monitoring in Targeted Watershed Assessment projects. For more information contact Jonathan Kult or Mike Shupryt.

Launch Wastewater Evaluation

Wastewater outfalls, variance permit sites, "variance" water quality standards waters, and all other water quality standards are displayed in this theme. In addition, the state's impaired waters, O/ERW waters, and trout waters are shown.

Launch Monitoring, Assessments and Planning

The monitoring, assessments and planning theme highlights projects and layers needed to integrate resource information, condition decisions, and specific actions needed to restore aquatic health.

Launch Healthy Watersheds Assessment Theme

The Water Condition Viewer (WCV) Healthy Watersheds Assessment Theme displays the results of Wisconsin's analysis of watershed condition and potential restoration indices, created in conjunction with the USEPA. Contact Kristi Minahan for more information on this theme.
