Waupaca/Tomorrow TWA, Waupaca County

Purpose

This project evaluated water quality improvements made in the Waupaca/Tomorrow River Watershed from Best Management Practices installed in the Waupaca-Weyauwega sub-watershed from 1996 through 2002 as part of the Waupaca River Priority Watershed Project. [TWA HUC12-040302021810]. This is a 319 project.

Objective

This project evaluated the effectiveness of BMPs installed in 1 HUC 12 watershed in the Waupaca/Tomorrow River HUC 10-0403020218 watershed following a Priority Watershed Project in 1995. This project was designed to determine if the goals of the Priority Watershed Project to protect and improve the watershed water quality were met. Monitoring will be conducted in 7 WBICs: 257800,257900, 5021203, 5020550, 258000, 5201414, & 258100. Aquatic macroinvertebrate samples will be collected at 6 locations. Qualitative habitat assessments will be conducted at 7 locations. Fish surveys will be conducted at 7 locations. TP, TN, and NO3-N monitoring will be conducted at 8 locations. TP and TN monitoring will be conducted at an additional 5 locations. Diatom samples will be collected in FY18 at 7 locations.

Outcome

A final report will be written and attached to this project by 12/31/2018.

Study Design

Water quality monitoring will be conducted at 13 locations. Aquatic macroinvertebrates will be collected at 6 locations in October 2017. 1 day of sampling and 1 day to re-preserve and transport to UWSP. All data will be entered into SWIMS database by UWSP staff by 12/30/2018. Qualitative Habitat surveys were conducted at 7 locations in FY18. One day sampling was needed to complete this monitoring and 1 day to enter the data into database. All data will be entered into FMDB by Water Resources staff by 12/31/2017. Fish surveys were conducted at 7 locations in FY18. Three days of sampling will be completed for the field surveys from July through September 2017. All fish data will be entered into the FMDB by Water Resources staff by 12/31/2017. Diatoms were conducted by Water Resources Staff at 7 locations in FY18. Diatom samples will be sent to the Monitoring Section staff of the DNR Water Quality Bureau. Inorganic chemistry (TP, TN, and NO3-N) monitoring were conducted at 8 locations. Sampling occurred twice per month May through June 2017 for TP, TN, & NO3-N at 8 locations, while sampling occurred once per month July through October 2017. Additionally, TP and TN sampling will be conducted twice per month in May and June 2017 at 5 locations. Between July and October 2017, TP and TN was sampled once per month at those 5 locations. All samples will be sent to Wisconsin State Lab of Hygiene for analysis and will be entered by the lab into SWIMS by 12/31/2017.

This project will evaluate water quality improvements made in the Waupaca/Tomorrow River Watershed from Best Management Practices installed in the watershed from 1996 through 2002 as part of the Waupaca River Priority Watershed Project. Water Action Volunteers’ volunteers were selected to monitor total phosphorus levels at ten of the sites included in this project. Many of these sites are also monitored for nitrogen and nitrates by the volunteers.
