KETTLE MORAINE LAND TRUST: Jackson Creek Watershed Protection Plan

Purpose

The project proposal is for the Kettle Moraine Land Trust to work with the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission to develop a watershed protection plan for Jackson Creek in Walworth County. The goal is to improve the hydrology and water quality throughout the watershed, which will ultimately reduce the suspended solids and nutrients draining to Delevan Lake. Methods will include identifying strategic actions and interventions such as streambank stabilization, buffer implementation, and wetland restoration. Also, identify relevant agencies and cost, acquire data on channel width, depth, sinuosity, water quality, and discussion on implementing plan recommendations. Public meeting will be held to inform the public of the project. Educational materials will also be developed to work with and provide assistance to Delavan Lake WIN, municipalities, and landowners within the watershed. Deliverables will include a watershed protection plan in a SEWRPC Memorandum Report or equivalent document and communication of recommendations to citizens and local municipalities. A $10,000 grant was requested for this project. Total project costs are $15,500.
