Ecological Landscapes for Lower Grand River Watershed

Ecological Landscapes

The Lower Grand River Watershed is covered primarily by the Central Sand Hills Ecological Landscape which is located in central Wisconsin at the eastern edge of what was once Glacial Lake Wisconsin. The landforms in this Ecological Landscape are a series of glacial moraines that were later partially covered by glacial outwash. The area is characterized by a mixture of farmland, woodlots, wetlands, small kettle lakes, and cold water streams, all on sandy soils. The mosaic of glacial moraine and pitted outwash throughout this Ecological Landscape has given rise to extensive wetlands in the outwash areas, and the headwaters of coldwater streams that originate in glacial moraines. The growing season is long enough for agriculture but the sandy soils limit agricultural productivity somewhat. Historic upland vegetation consisted of oak-forest, oak savanna, and tallgrass prairie. Fens were common in this Ecological Landscape and occurred along with wet-mesic prairie, wet prairie, and rare coastal plain marshes. Current vegetation is composed of more than one-third agricultural crops, and almost 20% grasslands with smaller amounts of open wetland, open water, shrubs, barren, and urban areas. The major forested type is oak-hickory, with smaller amounts of white-red-jack pine, maple-basswood, lowland hardwoods, aspen-birch, and spruce-fir.

Green Lake County: Lco-Green Lake County Ordinance Development Project: Green Lake County will conduct a land use and environmental resource inventory of the watershed surrounding Green Lake, Little Green Lake, and Lake Puckaway. The existing land use conditions in the area will be matched to the regulations governing development in the area and deficiencies in lake and shoreland protection will be noted. The information from the study will be used to update the existing zoning and shoreland protection ordinances and to assess the need for a storm water management ordinance in the County, the stormwater management ordinance, if its need is determined, will be written.

Reimbursement requests can be made every three months and must be accompanied by a progress report. Eligible equipment costs for this project must be used only for lake protection.

Equipment such as cameras, video/audio equipment, and computers must be leased to be an eligible project cost.

Little Green Lake P & R District: Res-Little Green Lake Destratification Project: The Little Green Lake Protection & Rehabilitation District proposes to install a circulation system consisting of compressors, air delivery lines, filter system, and a housing structure. The circulation system is designed to ensure sufficient oxygen concentrations in the deep-water areas of the lake. Oxygen in deep-water areas of the lake will reduce the release of phosphorous from the lake sediment and decrease the level of lake fertilization. This will result in improved water clarity and algae conditions thereby improving water quality conditions for recreation and aesthetics.

Local resources to be provided include volunteer services during installatiotn, volunteer services regarding project management, and financial contribution from Green Lake County.

The project deliverables will include design and installation of a system of compressors and airline sufficient to circulate lake water in the deepest portions of the lake generally greater than 15 feet; report of evaluation monitoring of lake nutrient and mixing conditions after the system becomes operational; and, conduct pre and post operation public informational meetings and prepare fact sheets (current lake conditions, descriptions of circ system, goals/benefits/ecological effects).

Lower Grand River WatershedWatershed History Note

The Villages of Kingston and Friesland are located in the Lower Grand River Watershed. The Grand River meanders through Kingston and is dammed there to form Grand Lake, a favorite year-around fishing spot for local fishermen. Kingston is also the eastern gateway to the Grand River Marsh State Wildlife Area, a four-season haven for conservationists, sportsmen and families interested in hunting, fishing and viewing wildlife. Located in the northeast corner of Columbia County is the Village of Friesland. In 1844, Welsh settlers came to the area and later, between 1893 and 1918, German and Dutch settlers arrived. The settlers first called this community Randolph Center, but it was changed to Friesland in 1910 when the railroad and post office came to the village. Friesland was chosen as the village name because of the many Dutch settlers, some of whom came from the province of Friesland in the Netherlands.
