Dye-Tracing Confirms Connection to Surface Water Pollution to Aquifer
Dye-tracing surface water inputs to Ichetucknee Springs by Karst Environmental Services confirmed the connections between Dyal and Black sinks to the Rose Creek Cave System. Rose Creek was previously traced to springs of the Ichetucknee Group. This trace also confirmed the connection of an elementary school well to this conduit system, as pink dye-colored water turned up in the school drinking water coolers during the trace.
