Monitor Targeted Watershed Area (TWA)
A Water Quality Plan for SP09 based on monitoring of the contemporary status of this subwatershed (HUC 12) in the Mineral Point Branch watershed. The DNR department collected fish, habitat, macroinvertebrate and water chemistry data for streams in this watershed. The data was used to determine whether these streams are achieving their attainable use to update the watershed tables, list waters are not meeting attainable use, and assess the overall health of the watersheds as required by Section 305(b) of the Clean Water Act. The data, used in conjunction with observations about watershed health, was be used to guide planning for improvements where needed. This subwatershed, and the adjoining subwatersheds that make up the HUC 10 were identified as one of the top group watersheds for nutrient input by the WI Nutrient Reduction Strategy.
