Notes
This water was assessed during the 2016 listing cycle; biological impairment was observed (i.e. at least one macroinvertebrate or fish Index of Biotic Integrity (IBI) average scored in the poor condition category).


This water was assessed during the 2018 listing cycle; based on 2018 WisCALM listing criteria for the Fish and Aquatic Life use, available biological data did not indicate impairment (i.e. no macroinvertebrate or fish Index of Biotic Integrity (IBI) scored in the "poor" condition category). Further biological monitoring is recommended.

Assessments during the 2020 listing cycle reveal that the previously listed unknown pollutant is total phosphorus. An additional impairment of high phosphorus levels was also added based on overwhelming exceedance of phosphorus criteria.
