Historical document outlining one of the first known dye traces conducted in Southeastern Minnesota in response to a report of gastro-enteritis on the property that appeared to be of water-borne nature. S.P. Kingston was a public health engineer for the Minnesota Department of Health District No. 3. One trace was conducted from a small leaching pit receiving septic tank effluent and suspected to resurge via a well in the basement of a residence situated on a limestone hill adjacent to Highway 52 just south of Rochester in Olmsted county. A series of appended documents is provided by the Minnesota Department of Health and Olmsted County Environmental Resources including well construction and lithology, property/well schematics, miscellaneous correspondence, and water analysis reports. An additional document is provided that includes a very brief summary of the findings of this 1942 report.
