LineageWater samples taken by the staff of the Department of Geology, University of Minnesota and the DNR Division of Waters. Field parameters were measured on site. Major cations and anions were analyzed by the Geology Department lab. Radioactive isotopes were analyzed by the lab at University of Waterloo, Canada. No additional data manipulation to construct coverage.
