Upper Fox and Wolf River Watershed Fish Surveys for 303d Evaluations - NER_04_CMP14

Purpose

Fish surveys will be conducted in July 2014 by 2 LTEs 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 in 2016.

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, TSS, Habitat, and Macroinvertebrate monitoring conducted in 2012-2013 at these sites, confirming biological impairment and habitat degradation. Fish surveys will be conducted at 12 locations: 10037736, 453259, 713260, 10014745, 10016228, 083121, 10016803, 10037663, 10037726, 713298, 083119, & 10031557.

Outcome

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

Study Design

Fish surveys will be conducted at 12 locations in July or August 2014: 10037736, 453259, 713260, 10014745, 10016228, 083121, 10016803, 10037663, 10037726, 713298, 083119, & 10031557.
