This document reports on August 2011 and July 2012 dye traces near the Crystal Springs State Fish Hatchery (CSSFH) and summarizes past efforts of dye tracing in the region to the north and west of Altura, MN. Tracing in this area is of interest because spring-fed waters contribute to the South Branch Whitewater River (SBWR), which then flows into the Whitewater River. Both rivers are Minnesota designated trout streams. A collaborative effort between the University of Minnesota and the Department of Natural Resources. Logistical support from the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR). Cited studies include support from the National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates program.
