Notes
Cedarburg Pond (aka Columbia Pond) is a part of the Cedar Creek Watershed. The Cedar Creek and Milwaukee River watershed was listed on the 2006 Section 303(d) list due to fish consumption advisories due to polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). In the 1970's, WDNR detected PCBs in sediments and fish in Cedar Creek. Investigation and remediation has been underway by WDNR and the USEPA Superfund program to address the PCB contamination. Fish tissue monitoring has been conducted for many years in the watershed. A fish consumption advisory (FCA) has been placed on Cedar Creek for all fish species. TMDL Approved for PCBs for this segment in FY09.
