Monitor Targeted Area
WCR Watershed staff will monitor Trow and Oakwood Lakes in Jackson County, Lake Dexter in Wood County and Lake Marinuka in Trempealeau County every two weeks from July through mid September. Trow and Oakwood lakes are impoundments on Halls Creek in Jackson County, Dexter is an impoundment on the Yellow River, Wood County and Marinuka is an impoundment on Beaver Creek. Water chemistry samples will be collected five times during this time period and analyzed for total phosphorus and chlorophyll a. Field parameters will also be collected including dissolved oxygen and temperatures profiles, pH and secchi disk readings. A YSI continuous profiling sonde is requested as part of this project.
