CLARKS CREEK DYE TRACER TIME OF TRAVEL STUDY
As part of a one-day study, residents located near Clarks Creek in Puyallup may notice a red dye in the water on Wednesday, August 5th. No need to worry! This dye is not harmful to public health, fish or the aquatic environment and will dilute as travels downstream. It is part of the dye tracer study Pierce County is conducting to help measure and track the movement of water downstream. The first phase of this testing was completed on May 27th, earlier this year. The results of the two studies will be compared to evaluate the impact of the Elodea (an Aquatic plant) harvesting on creek flow velocity and water surface elevation, and to support ongoing analyses of water quality in Clarks Creek.
