Lake Havasu Dredging Grinds to Halt

The Lake Havasu dredging project has been put on hold because of the thick lake weed. 

Floating lake weed patches are particularly thick in the area at the moment due to prevailing wind and current conditions causing frequent clogging of the jet drive intakes on the dredge boat.

According to the Lake Havasu Marine Association President, Jim Salscheider, the project to increase lake’s depth in that area is about halfway complete and only needs about five more days of work.

The overall depth of the channel has been increased by approximately 1-1/2′ to 2-feet and now ranges in depth from 4-1/2 to over 7 feet.

Dredging will resume as soon as it is determined that water and weather conditions are more favorable to complete the project, likely in early October.
