ARRA 17 Brown County Targeted Performance Standards Grant 2P-00E73201

Purpose

TMDL implementation planning for the Lower Fox, Plum, and East River Watersheds; contact with Brown Count LCD.

Objective

Support of Targeted Performance Standards & TMDL Implementation in Brown County. This proposal will help County staff implement actions related to the Clean Water Act and DNR’s targeted performance standards for nonpoint source pollution. A TMDL is in development for the Lower Fox River Basin and a cost optimization framework is being developed for Plum and East River Watersheds. This modeling will help determine the most cost effective pollutant control measures for these watersheds. These monies will be used by Brown County Land Conservation Department to evaluate these management practices and further plans toward targeted performance measures for these watersheds, to determine what is needed to meet load allocations determined by the TMDL.

Outcome

County Staff would: - Gather data from farmers including detailed information from Nutrient Management Plans, in particular, in the Plum and East River Watersheds in Brown County. - Use part of the grant to collect supplemental data for fields that do not have soil tests. - Input appropriate data into SNAP-Plus. - Create a GIS map displaying PI values for targeting resources to reduce phosphorus loading in the Plum and East River Watersheds as part of planning for Lower Fox River TMDL Implementation.
