RIVER ALLIANCE OF WISCONSIN: Kinnickinnic River: Water Qualtiy Analysis of Impoundment

Purpose

River Alliance and Friends of the Kinnickinnic River propose to collect water quality information from two small impoundments on the Kinnickinnic River and the river above, between and below the impoundments. Sampling is also proposed on the South Fork Kinnickinnic River which empties into the Kinnickinnic River between the two impoundments. Information will be collected following WISCALM guidance and will include sampling for total phosphorus, chlorophyll a, dissolved oxygen, pH, conductivity and temperature. Continuous temperature loggers will be deployed at all sites. Other funding sources will be used in addition to this grant to complete the entire project. Major project deliverables include 1) Data and reports will be shared with stakeholders and the community of River Falls 2) The final report will be submitted to the WDNR impaired waters sections for consideration and evaluation for impaired waters listing. 3) The final report will provide water quality information to City of River Falls and stakeholders to assist in developing the Kinnickinnic Corridor Planning process. 4) Develop and distribute brochures, flyers and posters to increase community engagement in the corridor planning process.
