Aquatic Biology in Nederlo Creek, Southwestern Wisconsin

Description: From abstract: This report presents the results of biologic investigations by the U.S. Geological Survey and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources during a study of hydrology and water quality in a small drainage basin in the "Driftless Area" of southwest Wisconsin. The investigation included aquatic macrophytes, periphytic and planktonic algae, benthic invertebrates, and trout population dynamics during 1967-78.

City Smoke Ordinances and Smoke Abatement

Description: From Introduction: "In connection with the fuel investigations conducted by the Bureau of Mines much information has been accumulated as to the smoke abatement activities in various cities. The essential features of the information are presented in this report, which, it is believed, will be of public interest and benefit, especially to those communities that are just beginning organized effort to abate unnecessary smoke."

Coal-Mine Accidents in the United States and Foreign Countries

Description: From Introduction: "The lack of comparable and accurate statistics of coal-mine accidents in the united States as a whole led the Bureau of Mines in 1911 to undertake the collection of such data. The mining departments of the leading foreign coal-producing countries have long taken cognizance of the importance of statistics. The bureau feels that in presenting the tables embodied in this report it is offering the and comparable statistics of coal-min accidents for the country as a whole that have ever been published."

Comparison of the Propane-Area Tracer Method and Predictive Equations for Determination of Stream-Reaeration Coefficients on Two Small Streams in Wisconsin

Description: From abstract: "This study was made to identify the best predictive equations for a stream's reareation-rate coefficient. Reaeration-rate information is needed in dissolved-oxygen modeling work, but an actual tracer measurement is not always possible."

Comparison of the Radioactive and Modified Techniques for Measurement of Stream Reaeration Coefficients

Description: This report compares the techniques used to measure re-aeration coefficients for Black Earth Creek and the Madison Effluent Channel near Madison, Wisconsin using radioactive and modified tracers. It contains maps, graphs, and photographs.

Comparison of Tracer Methods and Predictive Equations for Determination of Steam-Reaeration Coefficients on Three Small Streams in Wisconsin

Description: From abstract: Four modified nonradioactive-tracer methods and twenty predictive equations for determination of stream-reaeration coefficients (K2) in three small Wisconsin streams were compared with the radioactive-tracker methods developed by Tsivoglu.

Effects of a Floodwater-Retarding Structure on the Hydrology and Ecology of Trout Creek in Southwestern Wisconsin

Description: Abstract: The primary effect of a floodwater-retarding structure (FRS) on the flow of Trout Creek, Wisconsin, is attenuation of flood peaks. Reduction of flood peaks ranged from 58 to 91 percent during the study period, 1975 to 1979. An inverse relationship exists between sediment concentration and outflow from the FRS during floods. Most sediment stored in the flood pool during floods is released from the reservoir during subsequent reduced discharge. Sediment-trapping efficiency of the FRS was 7 percent during the 4-year study. The bankfull capacity of the channel was reduced from 154 cubic feet per second upstream from the FRS to 65 cubic feet per second downstream. Mean bankfull depth downstream from the FRS has adjusted to a value 45 percent less than upstream from the structure due to the sedimentation of materials transported from the FRS during reduced flows. The FRS was not found to have any significant adverse effect on the arthropod fauna or trout reproduction in Trout Creek from 1975 to 1979. During 1960-1979, winter floods seem to have had the greatest adverse effect on the survival of brown trout eggs and sac fry.

Hydrologic Considerations Associated with Dredging Spring Ponds in Wisconsin

Description: From purpose and scope: This report describes the hydrology of selected spring ponds and the effect that dredging has had on the ponds and their surrounding areas. The report emphasizes the water budgets for the ponds, discusses the hydrologic system which contains the ponds, and briefly describes water quality in the study area.

Hydrologic Effects of Proposed Changes in Management Practices, Winnebago Pool, Wisconsin

Description: From abstract: "Various changes in the management practices for the Winnebago pool to protect wetlands adjacent to the pool and to assure adequate streamflow downstream from the pool have been proposed. The effects of three such changes were estimated by using a digital reservoir model to simulate daily stage and discharge."

Hydrology and Water Quality in the Nederlo Creek Basin, Wisconsin, Before Construction of Two Water-Retention Structures

Description: From introduction: This study was begun in 1967 in cooperation with the Wisconsin Department of natural Resources (DNR)--its purpose was to evaluate the effects of construction of a reservoir and a floodwater-retention structure on the hydrologic system and water quality in a small basin in southwestern Wisconsin. In 1968, Federal research funds were obtained to provide for more detailed study of water quality and to extend the scope of the study to include aquatic biota.

Low-Flow Characteristics at Gaging Stations on the Wisconsin, Fox, and Wolf Rivers, Wisconsin

Description: From introduction: The purpose of the low-flow characteristics are in some instances affected by the period of record. These characteristics can vary as much as +/- 30 percent at some gaging stations depending on whether or not the severe drought of the 1930's was included in the analysis.
