Honey Creek TWA 2016

Purpose

This is a proposed 319 funded project is to complete evaluation monitoring on the HUC 10- Honey Creek Watershed which includes 3 HUC 12 Watersheds. We propose to monitor 14 sites on various streams and monitor 1 lakes- In June, July & August.

Objective

This project will be evaluating a Clean Water Act Section 319 Nine Key Element Watershed. The watershed is Honey Creek it consists of 3 HUC 12's (071200060501-503) they range in size from 12505 acres to 24114 acres. Major Waterbodies in the watershed include: Honey Creek, Spring Creek, Honey Lake, Pleasant Lake, Green Lake, Mill Lake, Middle Lake & Potters Lake. I will be choosing sites with historical data collection as well as some new sites on waterways to gather data in areas of need. The number of fish stations for IBI's will be 16-18 the number of macroinvertebrate sites will be 16, number of DNI samples will be 3, number of qualitative habitat sites will be 16-18. Water chemistry samples will be collected at 16-18 sites including of 3 sites at 6 monthly samples.

Outcome

Project will focus on Honey Creek Watershed Evaluation. Prior to 1997, Department staff conducted the monitoring of Nonpoint source control plan for the Honey & Sugar Creek Priority Watershed Project This was a large scale priority watershed project focusing on NPS control. Report will be generated summarizing our findings and evaluation the watershed water quality.

Study Design

Fish IBI surveys: (COLD, WARM, and COOL) will be completed at 16-18 stations May 15 through Sept 15. Data entered into the statewide FH database. Macroinvertebrate samples: will be collected at 16 locations, these will be collected during the fall period Sept 15 through Oct 31. Diatoms: will be collected at 3 locations during the summer of 2016. Protocols will be consistent with those outlined by ISS. Qualitative Habitat Surveys: will be collected at 16-18 locations to be completed the same day as the fishery surveys. Water Chemistry Samples: will be collected at several stations by possibly be a CBSM or DNR Staff
