2014 Clark's Creek Elodea Management


The in-water work window for 2014 was June 16-August 1. With a successful 2013 Diver-Assisted Suction Harvesting (DASH) clearing of the entire project area, the 2014 management was completed with the DASH method only, as outlined in the project's HPA permit.

In-water work began on June 16, 2014 and ended August 8, 2014. Daily updates from the progress and amount of elodea removed are posted below. Also posted below are the project-area maps.

2014 Project Details


In-Water Extension Granted


WDFW granted a request to extend the in-water work window by one week, as allowed by a minor modification in the HPA permit. This additional week will allow the contractor time to complete the contract work, which has been slowed by equipment failures now corrected with new pumps in the DASH boats.

Running Totals


  • Total area cleared: 15,750 LF
  • Total elodea removed: 29,565 bags
