Construction of a coal-fired electric generating station on wetlands adjacent to the Wisconsin River has permanently altered about one-half of the original 1,104-ha site. Change in the remaining wetlands continues as a result of waste heat and ashpit effluent produced by the station. Leakage of warm water from the 203-ha cooling lake is causing a shift in the wetlands from shallow to deep-water marsh. Coal-combination byproducts enter the wetlands from the station's ashpit drain. Since this area was known to have a diverse fish community and to be a spawning ground for Wisconsin River game fish, the authors studied the effects of this habitat loss and degradation on fish populations.
