Pebble Creek TWA 2014

Purpose

DNR will be conductiong Fish IBI sampling, Macroinvertebrate sampling, Continuous Temperature Monitoring and Water Chemistry sampling for Total Phosphorus in the Pebble Creek/Brandy Brook HUC 12 watershed. This sampling would include sites on: Pebble Creek (771300), Unnamed Trib to Pebble Creek (3000120), Unnamed Trib to Pebble Creek (3000119), Unnamed Trib to Pebble Creek (5035967), Brandy Brook (771400), Unnamed Trib to Brandy Brook (5036048) and Unnamed Trib to Brandy Brook (5036099). We will be using standard protocols outlined in WDNR guidance documents.

Objective

Currently, nine sites have been indentified on six different waterbodies. The waterbodies include: Pebble Creek (771300), Unnamed Trib to Pebble Creek (3000120), Unnamed Trib to Pebble Creek (3000119), Unnamed Trib to Pebble Creek (5035967), Brandy Brook (771400), Unnamed Trib to Brandy Brook (5036048) and Unnamed Trib to Brandy Brook (5036099). It will also be used to update information related to impaired waters listings as currently two of the streams are currently on the 303d list.

Outcome

Fisheries, habitat, temperature, water chem and macroinvertebrate date will be collected on up to nine sites in the Pebble Creek/Brandy Brook HUC 12 watershed. Data will be collected during the field season of the 2014 calendar year. Data will be entered into the FH database and SWIMS. Updated streams narratives and watershed reports will be entered into SWIMS and WATERS. All data will be entered into the respective database by Dec. 2014 or as soon as it become available.

This Targeted Watershed Assessment (TWA) will address needs for baseline water quality monitoring of the Pebble Creek/Brandy Brook Watershed. In 2014, Water Action Volunteers stream monitors were asked to assist in the monitoring process by collecting water samples. The TWA will hopefully provide enough information in order to evaluate the watershed for total phosphorus levels, update water body assessment status (i.e. future monitoring for 303(d)), make management recommendations, and update water body and watershed narratives in WATERS.
