Lower Fox RiverWatershed Monitoring Program

Stream and Field Monitoring Stations in Fox-Wolf Basin

Stream and edge-of-field monitoring data collected at water monitoring stations by the Lower Fox River Watershed Monitoring Program (LFRWMP) and U.S. Geological Survey - Wisconsin are supplied here primarily for in-house use by UW-Green Bay. Data presented here consists mostly as links to the original sources. These stations record precipitation, gage height, and discharge. As streamflow increases due to runoff events, automated samplers installed at the stations take water samples, which are analyzed by the Green Bay Metropolitan Sewerage District (NEW Water) laboratory for total phosphorus, dissolved phosphorus, and total suspended solids. This data, along with bimonthly low-flow sampling, enable researchers to model sediment and phosphorus loads delivered to Green Bay. Online real-time and historical data are available for the following stations, including those that are not part of the LFRWMP (select other menu items for other information):

  • USGS Real-time/Historical Flow Data (stream discharge and often loads on daily, monthly and annual basis, sample concentrations, field measurements, sites info/map, 5-15 minute instantaneous unit flow)
    • Lower Fox River Watershed Monitoring Program (LFRWMP) Stations (MAP) typically have: daily flow, precip, TSS loads; phosphorus loads; statistics; concentrations; and real-time data for active stations available from USGS or UWGB links below)
      • WY2004-16 Watershed Yield GRAPHS: Flow, TSS and Total Phosphorus (diss. & part. P) (graph in portrait)
        • Apple, Ashwaubenon, Baird, Bower, Duck, East River, Plum, Plum West, Silver, East River @ZZ
        • WY2004-17+ Concentrations (BOX PLOTS & TABLES) under Low, Event and All Flow conditions (same, plus Mahon Low Flow)
      • 14 day sample collection statewide Log and hydrograph for Wisconsin; Plum, Plum West, Silver sample logs
      • Low flow monitoring 2018 schedule 2019 schedule; Manual sample Log Sheets ; Sampling Work Matrix ; Sample Lab Matrix ; Event Sample Protocol
      • GLRI Edge-of-Field STUDIES (evaluate effectiveness of Agricultural Conservation Practices on water quantity and quality: suspended solids, turbidity, total and dissolved phosphorus, etc):
  1. funded jointly by the LFRWMP, Oneida Nation of Wisconsin and the USGS
  2. funded jointly by the LFRWMP, Green Bay Metropolitan Sewerage District (NEW Water) and the USGS
  3. funded jointly by the LFRWMP and the USGS through an EPA GLRI grant administered by the Fox-Wolf Watershed Alliance
