Fond Du Lac River (UF03) Watershed Planning


This project was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of BMPs installed in three HUC 12 watersheds in the Fond Du Lac River (HUC 10-0403020302) watershed following the implementation of a Nonpoint Source Priority Watershed Project that began in 1997. This TWA project was designed to determine if the goals of the Priority Watershed Project to protect and improve the watershed water quality were met. The study involved collecting repeatable biological, inorganic chemistry and habitat surveys provide valuable information for future comparison.
