Targeted Watershed Approach
Planning (WQ, Nine Key Element)
Final Report Needed
Rachel Sabre and other DNR staff will monitor of upstream portions of the Middle Fox River Watershed (HUC 10: 0712000607)Monitoring HUC 12: 01(Genesee Creek) 02 (Pebble Brook) 03(Mill Brook), 04 (Village of Big Bend) & 05 (Tichigan Lake). Water Quality monitoring as well as bank stability is being completed by local community stakeholder groups, and a possible 9 key element plan is proposed by SERWFC in three of the 5 HUC12 watersheds listed above. However the main focus of the monitoring for the proposed 9 key element is focused on the mainstem of the fox river. This data collection and monitoring will help bolster data collection for that project as well as continue to work to assess the full HUC8 Illinois Fox River Watershed. I have already completed monitoring of the HUC 10 Upper Illinois Fox River Watershed as well and monitoring of HUC 10 watersheds of Sugar & Honey Creeks.
