The Fox-Wolf Watershed, a drainage basin in Northeast Wisconsin, makes up almost 10% of the state. Within the Fox-Wolf Watershed there are three smaller basins: Wolf River basin, Lower Fox River basin, and Upper Fox River basin. Water within the Fox-Wolf Watershed drains to the Fox and Wolf Rivers, through the Winnebago Pool Lakes, out to the bay of Green Bay, and then to Lake Michigan.
Key features of this watershed include Lake Poygan, Lake Winneconne, Lake Butte des Morts, and Lake Winnebago which, together, contain about 17% of Wisconsin’s inland lake surface water. Portions of this watershed are also heavily urbanized. In Brown, Calumet, Outagamie, and Winnebago counties the population is nearing 700,000 people.
