A single dye trace in Yucatan Township, Houston County, Minnesota. All of these traces were conducted to further delineate springsheds in the area, characterize sinking streams in the Cambrian St. Lawrence Formation, and characterize surface‐groundwater interactions in the county. Characterizing sinking streams and their connection to cold water springs is important as these springs are critical water sources for trout streams in southeastern Minnesota. Report includes result tables, due input/transit/sampling point figures and discussion about study implications. This work is the result of collaboration between a number of agencies including the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, the Fillmore County Soil Water Conservation District, the Minnesota Geological Survey, and the University of Minnesota.
This effort was conducted as part of the Innovative Springshed Mapping for Trout Stream Management‐Phase II funded by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative and Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources.
