Impaired Water - Unnamed (Perennial Stream B (Tm2))
Walworth County, Wisconsin
FX05
755100
0.00 - 1.82
1.82
Water is impaired due to one or more pollutants and associated quality impacts.
Notes
TMDL has been approved 2003.
Perennial Stream B (TM2) is located in the Upper Honey subwatershed and flows
for 1.9 miles with a contributing drainage area of 2.1 square miles. It is listed as
impaired for its entire length for habitat degradation. According to a 1995 biological
survey, the existing use of the stream is Warm Water Forage Fish community stream.
It is officially classified as a Limited Forage Fishery community stream, and codified
as a Limited Forage Fishery.

Impaired Water Notes
Perennial Stream B (TM2) is located in the Upper Honey subwatershed and flows for 1.9 miles with a contributing drainage area of 2.1 square miles. It is listed as impaired for its entire length for habitat degradation. According to a 1995 biological survey, the existing use of the stream is Warm Water Forage Fish community stream. It is officially classified as a Limited Forage Fishery community stream, and codified as a Limited Forage Fishery. Fish habitat is rated as “poor” throughout the stream, indicating deposition of sediment throughout the stream.

Conditions affecting the water quality and aquatic habitat of this stream include erosion, historic channelization, drain tiles, bank debrushing, loss of fish and macroinvertebrate habitat, sedimentation, and nutrient enrichment. The cause of these problems is agricultural uses, including cropland runoff, drain tiles, and channelization. Sediment quantities deposited at the mouth of TM2 indicate that is a moderate contributor of sediment and nutrients to Honey Creek.

Recommendations in the watershed plan are to reduce suspended solids, establish buffers, discourage future dredging and wetland drainage activities, provide shading to the streams, and discourage future bank debrushing. Its potential use is a Warm Water Forage Fishery. It is unlikely to meet the codified use of Warm Water Sport Fishery because of the impairments listed above.
