Lower Fox RiverWatershed Monitoring Program

Spring Brook Team

Spring Brook Watershed.

Teachers and students from Oshkosh Lourdes began sampling Spring Brook in 2016. Oshkosh North High School sampled the stream from 2008-2015. Markeson High School sampled the stream from 2003-2007.

Spring Brook is the southernmost of the streams that are monitored in the program. It runs through mostly agricultural lands before flowing into Lake Butte de Morts in Winnebago County. Spring Brook was chosen to provide a comparison between streams in the Lower and Upper Fox River Basins. The creek drains an agricultural watershed, and empties into Lake Butte de Morts.
