Upper Fox River and Wolf River 303(d) Evaluation - NER_10_CMP13B

Purpose

Samples will be collected by an LTE and local biologist in East District at 11 tributaries to the Winnebago pool lakes, and 1 additional water upstream in the Wolf River watershed to determine phosphorus and habitat impairments for 303(d) listing purposes. Macroinvertebrate and Quantitative Habitat Monitoring for

Objective

Currently the entire Upper Fox and Wolf River watersheds are being monitored for TMDL development. To efficiently use funds for TMDL development, high loading watersheds will be monitored to help determine 303d status and calibrate the modeling effort. This project is a follow-up to the phosphorus and TSS monitoring conducted in 2012-2013 at these sites, confirming biological impairment and habitat degradation.

Outcome

Water quality data will be used to make assessment decisions for the 2014-2016 integrated reporting cycle.

Study Design

Aquatic macroinvertebrate samples and quantitative habitat data will be collected at each of the 12 sites in the study area in the fall 2013.
