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 historical data or other information):
