With the recent concern for nonpoint source pollution impacts to receiving waters, the Village of Saukville, Wisconsin took advantage of state funding grants to conduct a Stormwater Management Plan (Rust 1995). This plan included hydrologic/hydraulic evaluation of the study area, estimated nonpoint source pollution loadings to the watershed, and recommended best management practices (BMPs). This study was reinforced by the document, A Nonpoint Source Control Plan for the Milwaukee River South Priority Watershed (Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, 1991), which reported target reductions of sediment loadings by 50%, nutrient loadings (as measured by phosphorous) by 50–70%, and metals by 15–40%.
