What Are Wisconsin Fish and Aquatic Life Waters?

Wisconsin rules (Chapter NR 102) include the designated category of water in the State “Fish and Aquatic Life Water”. Water quality standards of these waters are promulgated in State Rules, to protect fish and aquatic life.

In practice, all Waters of the State that are not listed Outstanding Resource Waters (ORWs), listed Exceptional Resource Waters (ERWs), or part of the Great Lake drainage basin are classified as a Fish and Aquatic Life Water. These other categories have higher protection requirements, as defined in the Wisconsin Antigradation Policy (Chapter NR 207).
