Dredging the Way on the Siuslaw River

Posted on July 28, 2016

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE) dredge vessel Yaquina began work last Friday at the mouth of the Siuslaw River to conduct advanced maintenance dredging to clear the waterway. The 200-foot-long suction hopper dredger worked through the weekend and plans to return in September. “This has been an unusual year in that we did not see a lot of shoaling at the entrance,” COE Coastal Project Manager Kate Groth said. “If we get late summer shoaling, we can address it in September.” Port of Siuslaw lobbies every year to receive federal funds to pay for the dredging.
