Atmospheric Deposition and Biogeochemistry of Mercury and other Trace Contaminants in Aquatic Ecosystems, Final Project Report Part II: Mercury Studies 2002-2004

Description: This report summarizes the mercury studies, and has two main objectives. First to summarize the findings of biogeochemical investigations in the Devils Lake watershed during 2002, 2003, and 2004 and compare them to findings for other lakes. The second objective is to compile and tabulate the large amount of mercury data that are collected so that they will be usefule to the Tribe in future studies.

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.

Measurement and Prediction of Sediment Yields in Wisconsin Streams

Description: From introduction: This report presents practical and useful sediment-yield information for Wisconsin. Measured and estimated sediment yields are supplemented by information on suspended-sediment concentration and particle size of suspended and bed material for 84 sites in the State. To expand the usefulness of these data, an additional section in the report presents a method to estimate or predict sediment yields in ungaged streams.

Plan of Study for the Northern Midwest Regional Aquifer-System Analysis

Description: From abstract: Sedimentary rocks of Cambrian and Ordovician age form a major aquifer system in most of Wisconsin and Iowa, northern Illinois, northwestern Indiana, southeastern Minnesota, and northern Missouri. Many metropolitan areas depend on the aquifer for all or part of their water supplies. Declines in potentiometric head have been large in the most heavily pumped areas, most notably Chicago, Milwaukee-Waukesha, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and Des Moines.

Monthly and Annual Water Budgets of Lake Wingra, Madison, Wisconsin, 1972-1977

Description: From abstract: This report presents estimated annual and monthly water budgets for lake Wingra and the adjacent wetland area for January 1972 through September 1977. Annually, inputs from precipitation, surface runoff, and ground-water inflow are approximately equal (31, 34, and 35 percent, respectively). Outputs include outflow from the lake into Murphy Creek (70 percent), evotranspiration from the lake and wetland (26 percent), and ground-water outflow (4 percent).

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."
