Flambeau Flowage (UC14) Watershed Planning

Purpose

The Flambeau Flowage Watershed is located primarily in Iron County with smaller sections in northwest Vilas County and northern Price County. It has an area of 247 square miles. The Turtle-Flambeau Flowage is the largest waterbody at 12,942 acres. There are numerous other lakes. The Turtle River passes through many of the lakes and is the largest stream. The lower end of the Manitowish River is also present. The watershed is minimally developed, with 99% of its area consisting of forest, wetland, and open water.

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.
