Reports and Documents
The main objective of this study was to collect limnological data on Chilton Millpond. Our goal with gathering this baseline information to help us make decisions on whether to continue the effort to establish a warm water fishery in Chilton Millpond at this time or defer this attempt to a later time. A secondary goal of this study was to look for relationships between the land uses in the watershed and the water resources of the South Branch of the Manitowoc(and it's tributaries) and the problems of that face the resources of the Chilton Millpond.
