Watershed planning focuses efforts on reducing cropland erosion, controlling nutrient losses from sedimentation and the application of wastes, and increasing buffers along waterways to work towards meeting Wisconsin’s Water Quality Standards for all waterbodies in Kewaunee County.
9-Key Element Planning: fall under the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Nonpoint Source (Section 319) Program and help to determine the contributing causes and sources of nonpoint sources of pollution, while creating partnerships with all stakeholders to address water quality problems.
Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL): establishes the maximum amount of a pollutant allowed in a waterbody and serves as the starting point or planning tool for restoring water quality. The ultimate goal of the TMDL is to improve water quality by reducing pollutants, such as phosphorus and sediment.
