ONEIDA COUNTY: 2021 Oneida County Stream Crossing Project


Oneida LWCD is sponsoring a project to identify stream crossings, collect data and identify crossings with barriers, prioritize crossings, and share results. The project goals: Identify stream crossings within project area, Collect data at crossings (including mussel monitoring of at least 30 sites), Analyze and interpret data, and Foster cooperation, coordination, and communication amongst government agencies, non-profit organizations, and private citizens. Project deliverables include: 1. Assess and prioritize stream crossings throughout 6 Towns in Southern and Eastern Oneida County. Photos taken at each site. Each site assessment downloaded and linked to GIS culvert layer. 2. Data collected will be tabulated and converted into graphs or figures. This information will be shared with interested parties, included in the final report, and listed on 2.1. Stream crossings prioritized. Priority sites will be color coded on GIS layer. 3. Outreach materials: Sign-in/attendance sheets. Powerpoint presentation. Photos. Evaluation forms, which will gauge if workshop successfully provided information. 3.1. Listserv created. Final report, to include 6 Town summary reports distributed to 'Stream Crossing' listserv and posted on website. Documentation of website postings. Write one newspaper article. Share project to all media sources (print, radio, tv). 3.2. Outreach to towns involved in 2020 stream crossing prioritization to encourage them to apply for grants to replace high priority culverts. DATCP engineering support for site assessment and culvert design plans will be offered. Special Conditions: Oneida County LWCD will work with Wisconsin DNR NHC staff to ensure preferred mussel monitoring protocols are being used.
