Preparations Underway for LaPush Dredging

A U.S. Army Corps of Engineers contractor is staging equipment near LaPush, Washington, in anticipation for upcoming dredging operations.

Portable Hydraulic Dredging, Inc, from Eagle Creek, Oregon, is tentatively scheduled to start September 25 on the $1.7 million project.

The company will dredge about 70,000 cubic yards, working until December, barring weather delays.

The dredging operations are extremely important to support U.S. Coast Guard Station Quillayute River which performs search-and-rescue operations from the marina located on the Quileute Indian Reservation. The station’s area of responsibility covers 63 miles of Pacific Ocean coast and extends 50 nautical miles offshore.

The dredging ensures continuous Coast Guard operations, allowing unfettered access of rescue vessels.

The clean dredge material will be used for beach nourishment on Rialto Beach.

Beach nourishment is the placement of the material on or near the beach, usually to renourish an eroding beach.
