NFCRWD Subwatershed Assessment
The subwatershed assessment will identify the most effective locations for BMPs so that money and other resources can be focused on achieving the greatest load reductions and most bang for your buck BMPs rather than simply undertaking the cheapest, easies
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
There is one lake and three streams in the North Fork Crow River Watershed District impaired by excess nutrients and impaired biotic communities. The Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategies have identified large areas and subwatersheds that have the potential to contribute high pollutant loads to the streams and lakes throughout the watershed. This Subwatershed Assessment study will evaluate three high loading subwatershed catchments in the North Fork Crow River Watershed. This study will use finer-scaled models (such as PTMApp) and additional subwatershed analyses to develop prioritized maps and an itemized list of potential projects and practices with cost/benefit analyses, expected load reductions.
