Taycheedah Creek TWA (Non-319)

Purpose

This project will evaluate water quality improvement/preservation efforts made in the Taycheedah Creek Watershed and in support of developing a Nine Key Element Plan.[TWA HUC12-040302030302]

Objective

This project will provide the water quality assessment to complete a 9KE Plan and provide baseline data to evaluate the effectiveness of future watershed BMPs in the Taycheedah Creek Watershed on the South side of Lake Winnebago. This project will provide the water quality data to determine whether or not the watershed improvements reduced the nutrient and sediment instream concentrations of Taycheedah Creek. Four locations will be monitored Total Phosphorus, Total Suspended Solids, Fish, Macroinvertebrates, Diatoms, Habitat, and Temperature. One WBIC will be sampled during this project: 138400 Taycheedah Creek

Outcome

Water quality monitoring will be conducted at 4 locations and final report written by 12/31/2020. All monitoring in this project will be conducted by Water Resources staff. (I am working with the WAV program to have volunteers collect the inorganic chemistry data for me). All inorganic chemistry and macroinvertebrate data will be entered into SWIMS. The State Lab of Hygiene will enter all inorganic chemistry data into SWIMS. The UWSP ABL will enter all bug data into SWIMS. Water Resources staff will enter all fish and habitat data into the FMDB.

Study Design

Aquatic macroinvertebrates will be collected at 8 locations in October 2019 (FY20). One day of sampling and 1 day to represerve and transport to UWSP. All data will be entered into SWIMS database by UWSP staff by 12/31/2020. Qualitative Habitat surveys will be conducted at 4 locations in FY20. Habitat data will be collected at each location during fish surveys and 1 day is needed to enter the data into database. All data will be entered into FMDB by Water Resources staff by 12/31/2019. Fish surveys will be conducted at 5 locations in FY20. Two days of sampling will be needed to complete the field surveys from July through September 2019. All fish data will be entered into the FMDB by Water Resources staff by 12/31/2019. Thermistors will be deployed at 4 locations from May to October 2019 to collect temperature data. Two sampling days will occur to deploy and retrieve the thermistors. All data will be uploaded into SWIMS by Water Resources staff by 12/31/2019. Inorganic chemistry (TP and TSS) monitoring will be conducted at 4 locations. Sampling will occur once per month May through June 2019 for TP and TSS at 4 locations (FY19). Additionally, sampling for TP and TSS will be conducted once per month July and August 2019 (FY20) at 4 locations. Four days of sampling will be required for this monitoring.
