WT Planning Milwaukee

Study Design

Watershed specified for planning and assessment purposes. Assessment of water quality condition in this respective county will use protocols described in WisCALM of the year of assessment. Minimum assessment work includes biological data (macroinvertebrates, fish indices), chemistry and habitat data. Additional work includes identification of priorities and goals, creating recommendations for actions, and updating narratives for watersheds and waterbodies. Assessments are to be double checked by at least one additional biologist.

Activities & Recommendations
Wastewater Monitoring or Management
Manure and Nutrient Management Based on input from County Land Conservationists and the Technical Advisory Committee for this water quality plan and on the identified need to control fecal coliform bacteria from both urban and rural sources, it was decided to recommend that all livestock operations in the study area with 35 combined animal units or greater as defined in Chapter NR 243, “Animal Feeding Operations,” of the Wisconsin Administrative Code provide six months of manure storage, enabling manure to be spread on fields twice annually during periods when the ground would not be frozen prior to spring planting and after summer and fall harvest. It is also recommended that manure and any supplemental nutrients be applied to cropland in accordance with a nutrient management plan consistent with the requirements of Sections ATCP 50.04, 50.48, and 50.50 and Section NR 151.07 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code. Finally, it is recommended that nutrient management requirements for concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) in the study area be based on the WPDES permit conditions for those operations.
Runoff Evaluation
Reduction in Soil Erosion from Cropland The GMA WQMP calls for practices to reduce soil loss from cropland to be expanded to attain erosion rates less than or equal to T by 2020. This could be accomplished through a combination of practices, including, but not limited to, expanded conservation tillage, grassed waterways, and riparian buffers. The applicable measures should be determined by the development of farm management plans which are consistent with the county land and water resources plans.
