River Planning Grant
Southeast Wisconsin Watersheds Trust (SWWT) is undertaking a project to draft a Nine-Key Element compliant sub-watershed plan for Pigeon, Ulao, Mole, and Cedar Creek, in Washington and Ozaukee Counties. The Nine-Key Element Plan combines the deliverables from River Management Grants RP30517 and RP30417, which funded the development and completion of two separate planning documents. Recognizing that a single document will facilitate more efficient plan development, administration, monitoring, and adoption, the scope agreements of deliverables for the two separate plans are now combined, as reflected below. SWWT will undertake the following activities, with deliverables relating to those actions: Develop a Nine Key Element Plan for Pigeon, Ulao, Mole, and Cedar Creek. - Review and consult with stakeholders and partners within the sub-watershed to incorporate existing planning work and identify gaps and non-compliant elements of those plans. - Conduct public outreach and survey in support of Plan development. - Utilize EVAAL and STEPL modelling results, as well as Milwaukee River Basin TMDL allocations in the development of the Plan. - Develop a final Nine-Key Element Plan for the Pigeon, Ulao, Mole and Cedar Creek sub-watersheds. - Submit Nine-Key Element Plan to DNR and EPA and receive approval on the Plan. - Provide to the Department a hard copy and electronic copy of the approved Plan. - Provide to the Department a summary of the outreach conducted as part of Plan development, including Survey results, meetings held, and screen shots of advertising undertaken to promote Plan development.
