Notes
On 303d list, TMDL approved; also in 1980 trout streams list (class 2) nutrients, sediment Better land use practices, including managed grazing and buffering of the stream in the headwaters areas would help reduce loads to the lower stream. Rogers Branch Watershed Land Use and Sampling Location for TMDL Development Rogers Branch is a twelve-mile stream in northcentral Grant County that has its origin near the village of Fennimore and flows south and joins with Borah Branch to form the Grant River near Lancaster, Wisconsin. It has a moderate to high gradient of 31 feet per mile and drains an area of approximately 14 square miles. The land use is characterized mostly as agriculture and forest. The stream is fairly small (less than 2 meters wide) for the upper 7 miles of stream. Downstream from Link Road, it gains in size until just upstream from Borah Road, where a large spring instantaneously adds approximately 5 cubic feet per second of cold water (10 C) flow to the stream. The stream is classified as a Class II trout water for the lower 8 miles of stream (below Town Line Road), and default for the upper 4 miles. DO, degraded habitat
