Residents who are around Lake Fayetteville on Thursday may notice something strange about the water.

A group of University of Arkansas students plan to conduct an experiment as part of a study on karst hydrogeology. The students will use a fluorescent green dye to trace water flow through the lake.

The environmentally-friendly dye may color the lake water, but it should dissipate within a few hours and flush through the water flow overnight, according to a news release.
