Identify Impaired Waters
In Quality Assurance
ATTAINS Follow-up monitoring conducted
WCR is seeking funds to purchase a YSI continous multiprobe sonde to monitor several 303d listed streams in the Central Wisconsin basin. Continuous monitoring, specifically dissolved oxygen (DO), would be completed on waterbodies that are on the 303d list for low DO as well as waterbodies not on the list, where low DO is suspected as an impairment. Streams that are currently listed for low DO include Mill Creek and the Big Eau Pleine River. DO monitoring would also be completed on the Wisconsin River to verify that current Waste Load Allocations are protective of the river and flowages.
