Impaired Water - Badger Mill Creek (Badger Mill Creek)
Dane County, Wisconsin
SP15
888100
2.00 - 5.00
3.00
Water is impaired due to one or more pollutants and associated quality impacts.
Notes
Removed from 303d list (1998 entry) for TSS in 2002.

This water was assessed during the 2014 listing cycle; biological sample data met 2014 WisCALM listing thresholds for the Fish and Aquatic Life use (i.e. macroinvertebrate or fish Index of Biotic Integrity (IBI) average scored in the fair to excellent condition categories).

This water was assessed during the 2018 listing cycle; new total phosphorus sample data overwhelmingly exceed 2018 WisCALM listing criteria for the Fish and Aquatic Life use, however, available biological data do not indicate impairment (i.e. no macroinvertebrate or fish Index of Biotic Integrity (IBI) scored in the "poor" condition category). Existing chloride and temperature sample data were assessed, but did not exceed 2018 WisCALM listing criteria for the Fish and Aquatic Life use.
