This report presents the findings of 2018 dye tracing conducted near Crystal Creek in southern Fillmore County, Minnesota and spring monitoring and nitrate loading at Pond Spring (Figure 1). Previous dye tracing in the Crystal Creek area occurred in 2010, 2011, 2013, and 2016 in support of the Root River Field to Stream Partnership (Kuehner and others, 2017). The Root River Field to Stream Partnership (RRFSP) is a multi-agency effort led by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA). The primary goal of the partnership is to characterize nutrient losses by agriculture to surface water and groundwater and to apply sustainable best management practices (BMPs) to reduce those losses. The Crystal Creek Watershed is one of the three study areas in the partnership.
Funding for this project is provided by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund and the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment.
