1801800
0.00 - 6.27
6.27
Water is impaired due to one or more pollutants and associated quality impacts.
Notes
This water was assessed during the 2018 listing cycle; new biological (fish Index of Biotic Integrity (IBI) scores) sample data were clearly below 2018 WisCALM listing thresholds for the Fish and Aquatic Life use.
Assessments during the 2020 listing cycle show total phosphorus levels too high for healthy aquatic communities like plants, fish, and bugs. However, biological data (fish) were in excellent condition. This portion of the creek was proposed for the impaired waters list in 2020.

Impaired Water Notes
This water was assessed during the 2020 listing cycle; new total phosphorus sample data overwhelmingly exceed 2020 WisCALM listing criteria for the Aquatic Life use, however, available biological data do not indicate impairment (i.e. no fish Index of Biotic Integrity (IBI) scored in the "poor" condition category).
