Lake & Watershed Management

Upper Mississinewa River Watershed Diagnostic Study (Management Plan) – Michael R. Martin, CLM was principal investigator and author of a watershed diagnostic study of the Upper Mississinewa River in Delaware and Randolph Counties, Indiana. The study watershed covered approximately 66,100 acres and 21.5 miles of river, including at least 25 tributary streams and ditches. The project included water quality monitoring, an analysis of historical data, an evaluation of point sources, extensive watershed surveys and NPS modeling to identify NPS problem areas. The plan recommended a number of site-specific and watershed-specific BMPs and ranked priority watersheds based upon water quality in exceedance of normalized values.

Upper Saranac Lake Diagnostic-Feasibility Study – Michael R. Martin was the principle investigator and author of an extensive study of Upper Saranac Lake in Franklin County, NY – one of the last large Clean Lakes Program-funded diagnostic-feasibility studies. The study included the establishment of a number of automated stream water level stations, a local weather station and three in-lake monitoring stations, resulting in well over one million data points for analysis. In addition to monitoring, modeling and plan development, Mr. Martin facilitated a number of meetings of the Citizens Advisory Committee to develop an implementation plan based upon the report.
