WCR Regional 303d Stream Monitoring WCR_04_09

Purpose

The purpose of this special project is to conduct monitoring to update and verify WCR listing of impaired streams on the 303d list. The project will also use previously collected fish and bug data to prioritize selection of streams that may be impaired.

Objective

This special project will colllect biological, chemical and physical information from a number of streams in WCR that are either; 1) already on the 303d list without adequate or current supportive documentation, or 2) in need of additional monitoring in order to determine whether the stream should be listed as impaired.

Outcome

WCR proposes to monitor at least 42 stream sites during the field season of 2008. Fish community, macroinvertebrate, qualitative habitat and base flow water chemistry will be collected. Sampling will be completed by November 15th 2008. Data will be entered into WT/FH data bases by February 1, 2009 and used in developing recommendations for the 2010 303d list. Breakdown by basin: St Croix - Chippewa Basin: 6 sites Central Wisconsin: 10 sites Black-Buffalo-Trempealeau - 17 sites LAX-Bad Axe - Kickapoo Basin - 9 sites
