Foot Lake's sediments disturbed by dredging that uncovered mystery

Email

WILLMAR -- The decision to drill a sediment core on Willmar Lake was done in part because of knowledge that sediment in Foot Lake was disturbed by years of dredging, according to Robert Palmer, Willmar High School science instructor.

He led local students who joined Dr. Kate Pound, geologist with St. Cloud State University, in a project to collect sediment core samples from Willmar Lake and Eagle Lake on Feb. 17.
