A dye trace was conducted in an area in the City of Harmony, Minnesota, and an area located just west of the City of Harmony, Minnesota from October 28, 2008 to May 4, 2009 (Figure 1). Numerous dye traces have been completed in this area in the past and this effort was made in order to better delineate the springsheds in this area due to the close proximity of numerous State of Minnesota designated trout streams. Achieving a better understanding of the connection of these sinkholes receiving surface water flow and their connectivity to springs that provide a cold water source for the designated trout streams in the area was the goal of this trace.
Cooperators: City of Harmony Fire Department, Earth Systems Class ‐ Fillmore Central High School. One dye trace in Fillmore County. The sinkholes traced from lie near a springshed divide and were traced from in an effort to better delineate the boundary between three separate springsheds. A collaborative effort between the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the University of Minnesota.
