Reports and Documents
The Winnebago Waterways Recovery Area sits within the larger Upper Fox and Wolf River Basins. The project area spans six counties and includes the four Winnebago Pool Lakes as well as the surrounding subwatersheds. While most lake management plans focus mainly on in-lake issues, this plan is being written as a watershed plan. This means the lake management plan will address in-lake issues as well as runoff from urban and agricultural landscapes which can have a negative impact on water quality.
