This data layer depicts Locations of Springs collected by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MN DNR). Data were compiled from various sources, including the Karst Features Database (Minnesota Geological Survey), historical documents, field surveys by MN DNR staff, and approved citizen reported submittals. The Minnesota Spring Inventory (MSI) was created to help provide information for this resource so that spring flows can be maintained and groundwater-dependent resources protected. The information can be used to identify sampling locations, monitor groundwater conditions, guide fish stocking locations, site park trails, identify and monitor critical habitat, and identify conditions for building construction.
