SAUK COUNTY: Lower WI River Floodplain Lake Recharge Delineation

Purpose

Sauk County will undertake a River Planning Grant project that will provide groundwater modeling necessary to map groundwater recharge areas of four LWR backwater lakes. This will provide land use planning information necessary to assist in working with landowners to target nutrient reduction practices in those areas with the greatest impact on lake water quality. Deliverables: 1. Provide a summary of hydrogeological data and studies review. 2. Construct numerical groundwater models that allow the recharge area of each backwater lake to be delineated. 3. Prepare maps, cross section and plan view of recharge areas suitable for conservation and land use planning purposes. 4. Provide documentation of modeling activities and results, including model uncertainties. 5. Public outreach and education to share information and to assist landowners in developing strategies that ensure appropriate land use activities in sensitive lake recharge areas. 6. Results will be shared with WGNHS, and WDNR Spring Green well head nutrient study project team.
