Fond du Lac River PWS Plan - Nine Key Element Plan

Purpose

The Fond du Lac River Watershed ranked as a high priority for surface water concerns and a medium priority for groundwater concerns in the Upper Fox River Water Quality Management Plan. The project compliments the Winnebago Comprehensive Management Plan in addressing pollutant load reductions to Lake Winnebago.

Objective

There are four subwatersheds within the Fond du Lac River Watershed. Campground Creek watershed has elevated stream temperatures, wetland loading, streambank erosion, sedimentation, barnyard/agricultural runoff, low flow, urban runoff, and construction site erosion. The East Branch of the Fond du Lac River has many tributaries that are drainage ditches constructed for agricultural benefits. The West Branch of the Fond du Lac River includes Eldorado Marsh. The Wineebago West subwatershed has several small wetlands and is primarily agricultural land.

Outcome

County conservation staff will contact rural landowners to determine interest in BMPs. The DNR will handle implementation in the urban areas of the watershed.
