A dye trace was conducted in an area near the city of Canton, Minnesota from March 11, 2008 to June 16, 2008. Dye traces have been completed in this area in the past and this effort was made to further refine delineation the springsheds in this area due to the close proximity of Frego Creek, a Minnesota designated trout stream. Much of the city of Canton’s stormwater flows to sinkholes throughout the city limits and some just outside of city limits. Achieving a better understanding of the connection of these sinkholes receiving this stormwater flow and their connectivity to springs that provide a cold water source for Frego Creek was the goal of this trace.
Two dye traces with tables and figures. A collaborative Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the University of Minnesota.
