The University of Wisconsin-Madison Water Resources Management graduate student cohort at the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies will provide management recommendations and promote community engagement surrounding the Waubesa Wetlands watersheds. A report on the findings and a discussion of management considerations will be provided to the Capital Area Regional Planning Commission (CARPC), the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR), the City of Fitchburg, the Town of Dunn, and other interested stakeholders by 2019.
Specifically, the project team will meet the following objectives:
- Augment on-going water quality monitoring efforts,
- Model surface water under different land use scenarios,
- Assess the quality of wetland ecosystems within the watershed, and
- Engage with stakeholders through website development and community outreach events.
