Crossman Creek - Little Baraboo River PWS Plan - Nine Key Element Plan

Purpose

The Crossman Creek - Little Baraboo River Priority Watershed Plan addresses the needs for control of nonpoint source pollution to the Baraboo River and to the tributaries entering the Baraboo River between Wonewoc and Reedsburg. Nonpoint source pollution is the pollution carried to the surface water or groundwater through the action of rainfall runoff or snowmelt. In this watershed the sources of this type of pollution include upland erosion, streambank erosion, gully erosion, construction site erosion, barnyard runoff, manure stacking runoff, and field spread manure runoff. The plan sets out objectives for each stream or lake and the level of nonpoint source control needed to reach the objectives.

Objective

The objectives of the project are: 1) improve the warm water fisheries 2) protect the current trout fisheries 3) improve the water quality and the habitat to support a trout fishery 4) support a valuable forage fish population 5) protect the current water quality of the lake 6) decrease the duration and intensity of the algae blooms in the lake.

Outcome

First, the changes in land use and calculated pollution levels as a result of the practices installed will be investigated. Second, the actual changes in water quality and water use (such as fish populations) that resulted from the project will be measured. The changes in water quality will depend on the participation and cooperation of the landowners within the project area.
