East Twin River (TK02) Watershed Planning

Purpose

The East Twin River Watershed plan, to be updated 2014/16) is bordered on the east by Lake Michigan in Kewaunee and Manitowoc couonties and is 117,493 acres in size. The watershed contains 314 miles of streams and river, 12,446 acres of lakes and 14,181 acres of wetlands. The watershed is dominated by agriculture (75%) and wetlands (12%) and is ranked high for nonpoint source issues affecting streams, lakes and groundwater.

Outcome

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.
