Humans created many of the state's deepest water bodies
In the Land of 10,000 Lakes, which one dips the lowest?
It's a tricky question in a state that boasts both natural lakes and deep, water-filled mine pits. Brian Chileen submitted it to Curious Minnesota, the Star Tribune's community-driven reporting project, at the State Fair this year.
And it piqued the interest of fairgoers, who voted "What's the deepest lake in Minnesota?" to be among their favorite questions during Curious Minnesota Day at the Star Tribune's State Fair booth.
