2022 DNR Water Conditions List: How does it impact the Rock River Basin?

In our September E-Newsletter we shared the newest publication of the Wisconsin DNR’s Water Conditions List. This list is created every 2 years in compliance with the Clean Water Act. Wisconsin includes impaired waters, restoration waters, and healthy waters.

In the state of Wisconsin, more than 80% of lakes and rivers are considered healthy, in a trend that seems to be improving across the state. On the other end, 92 new bodies of water or segments have been placed on the impaired list. As a result, these require a restoration plan to mitigate and improve the quality to acceptable standards.

In the recent  publishing, 115 new pollutants were identified and proposed. The majority of these are for phosphorus and bacteria, but it also includes E. coli, which is a relatively new criterion. Of these 115, 11 bodies of water will be directly placed on the restoration list, because they are covered by an existing restoration plan. On the plus side, 22 waters were removed from list.
