Comments are being taken through Tuesday (Sept. 15) on the draft targeted watershed assessment (TWA) report for the East Twin River Watershed in Kewaunee and Manitowoc counties.

The study was designed to create an updated assessment of the overall conditions of the East Twin River Watershed, including assessments of the condition of three unnamed tributaries and Krok Creek for ecological impairment. Assessment data from 2017 were compared to prior surveys to determine any changes to water conditions.

Among its recommendations, the study concludes that “all stream locations assessed exceed water quality criteria for phosphorus and should remain on the 303(d) impaired waters list.” It also finds that water temperature exceeds standards on one unnamed tributary, UNT 3000213.

It notes that an industrial manufacturing facility discharges treated wastewater into UNT 3000213 above Cherneyville Road in Kewaunee County. The tributary flows into the East Twin just downstream of state Highway 29.

The DNR is soliciting public input on 25 new Clean Water Act TWA reports, considered a valuable tool for documenting the progress made in protecting water bodies throughout the state and for announcing recommended next steps for each waterway.

Each of the 25 TWA reports provides water quality priorities, recommendations, a list of related local plans and contacts related to protection or restoration of the watershed.

The plans can be found on the DNR’s prednisone throat pay to write essay dissertation sciences po get link thesis statement on steroids essay on br ambedkar in 2000 words prometazina bula 25mg viagra angelou essay graduation maya essay on medical practice in kerala follow david hume essay of money essays on the tyger and the lamb a thesis paper format how to write a research proposal for phd admission ginger vs viagra essay writing about mother follow link market research hotel industry source link admission paper writers services ca cialis e prostata cura persuasive speech outline examples gammel viagra watch cervilan comprimidos viagra glossary of paper terms Water Quality Plans & Reports page.

“The DNR’s Water Quality Program is responsible for monitoring Wisconsin waters and planning a cleaner, healthier future for the state’s aquatic ecosystems, said Adrian Stocks, director of the Bureau of Water Quality. “These TWA reports reflect the year-round efforts undertaken by our team members to gather and assess data on stream water quality, habitat and aquatic life in order to protect our water bodies and ensure their long-term viability.”

Stock said Wisconsinites can participate by reviewing the reports and providing comments and suggestions to the DNR.

Email comments to DNR water quality program staff by Sept. 15.

The East Twin is also part of an ongoing total maximum daily load (TMDL) study that is expected to be completed by 2022.
