The karst lands of southeast Minnesota contain more than one hundred trout streams that receive perennial discharge from Paleozoic bedrock springs. Several of the Paleozoic bedrock units that provide discharge are conduit-flow dominated aquifers. Gilbert Creek is one of these designated trout streams. The creek’s headwaters are located roughly 9.5 kilometers (5.7 mi.) west of Lake City, Minnesota in Wabasha County. A single trace was conducted in October 2012. Report includes hydrogeologic background, result tables, geographic context and a brief discussion of study findings. A collaborative effort between the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the University of Minnesota.
