Water Resources and Wetlands

The Oneida Reservation is drained by four major streams:

  • Duck Creek and its tributaries (Oneida Creek, Fish Creek, Silver Creek, and Trout Creek)
  • Dutchman Creek
  • Ashwaubenon Creek
  • South Branch of the Suamico River

We work in partnership with local, state and federal partners to protect and improve surface waters of the Reservation by:

  • Managing storm water runoff;
  • Defining, restoring, and enhancing the watershed including:
    • Wetlands
    • Restoring and protecting surface water habitats

For more information about the surface waters of the Reservation, please call Jim Snitgen, Water Resources Supervisor at (920) 869-4589


There are approximately 1,600 acres of wetlands on the Oneida Reservation and are important features on the land that provides benefit for people and for fish and wildlife that include:

  • Protect and improve water quality
  • Provides fish and wildlife habitat
  • Storing floodwaters
  • Maintaining surface water flow during dry periods

If you think you may have a wetland on your property, contact the Wetland Program Coordinator, Tony Kuchma at 869-4592. Wetland determinations and wetland delineations can be performed for Tribal members living on the Reservation at no cost.


Areas that are inundated or saturated by surface or groundwater at a frequency and duration sufficient to support, and under normal circumstances do support, a prevalence of vegetation typically adapted for life in saturated soil conditions.”
