FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Madison—Thousands of Wisconsinites will take to the water this Fourth-of-July for the state's busiest boating holiday of the year. During the tenth annual Landing Blitz, July 3-7th, 2019, many boaters will be greeted at landings and access points by Glacierland RC&D and Wisconsin DNR staff, as well as volunteers sharing a simple, but powerful message: YOU can protect lakes, rivers, and streams from aquatic invasive species.read full article

Stocking and DNR Surveys
- None on file.
North Twin Lake: GOOD (2015 data)
- Secchi Disk (2015): The average summer secchi disk reading (Deep Hole) was 11.5 feet. Southeast Georegion average = 7.1 feet. Typically, the north lake’s summer water was reported as CLEAR and BLUE.*
- Chemistry (2015): Not available.
- Trophic State Index (TSI) (2015): 42/Mesotrophic. Mesotrophic lakes are characterized by moderately clear water, but have a increasing chance of low dissolved oxygen in deep water during the summer.
South Twin Lake: FAIR (2015 data)
- Secchi Disk (2015): The average summer secchi disk reading (Deep Hole) was 5 feet. Southeast Georegion average = 7.1 feet. The south lake’s water was MURKY and BROWN. This suggests that the secchi depth may have been mostly impacted by suspended sediments, tiny particles of soil or organic matter that are suspended in the water. Shallow lakes are often turbid because wind stirs up sediment from the bottom. High suspended sediments are often found in flowages and impoundments where precipitation runoff from the watershed transports solids via an incoming stream.
- Chemistry (2015): Not available.
- Trophic State Index (TSI) (2015): 54/Eutrophic. Based on secchi, not chlorophyl. This TSI usually suggests decreased clarity, fewer algal species, oxygen-depleted bottom waters during the summer, plant overgrowth evident, warm-water fisheries (pike, perch, bass, etc.) only. To calculate true TSI, chlorophyll should be measured. A limited number of grants are available to expand your monitoring to this level if you are interested (contact your Region Coordinator for more info).
