Pine River Watershed (CW29) Watershed Planning


Watershed plan update 2011. The Pine River Watershed is located in Lincoln and Langlade counties. A Lincoln County Nonpoint Source (NPS) assessment report conducted by the DNR in 1982 indicated that the Pine River Watershed contained streams with a moderate value for county residents or a moderate potential for water quality or fi shery improvement. Land use in the watershed indicates a high NPS pollution potential. The Pine River Watershed was ranked per the Nonpoint Source Priority Watershed Selection Criteria. There was insufficient data for ranking this watershed; therefore it is ranked a low priority throughout the Central Wisconsin basin. More monitoring needs to be conducted to get a better understanding of the watershed and its resources.

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.
