Red River/Sturgeon Bay PWS Plan - Nine Key Element Plan

Purpose

The Red River/Sturgeon Bay Priority Watershed Project plan assesses the nonpoint sources of pollution in the Red River/Sturgeon Bay Watershed and guides the implementation of nonpoint source control measures. These control measures are needed to meet specific water resource objectives for the Red River/Sturgeon Bay and its tributaries. The purpose of this project is to reduce the amount of pollutants originating from nonpoint sources that reach surface water and groundwater within the Red River/Sturgeon Bay Priority Watershed Project area.

Objective

To improve water quality and safeguard wells by reducing nutrients, sediment, and bacteria loading from animal lots, improperly stored manure, milkhouse waste, eroding farm fields and urban areas; develop a well head zone of contribution for the city of Sturgeon Bay and incorporate any areas delineated into the project area; stabilizing flow rates of creeks in the watershed; and maintaining woodland corridors and buffers.
