Coquille River Streambank Stabilization Project Proposed

The Port of Bandon is working on a plan that will stabilize the streambank on Coquille River near Bandon, Coos County, Oregon.

The port project proposes discharge of fill material above and below the high tide line (HTL) of the Coquille River in order to stabilize the streambank and minimize erosion adjacent to their offices.

It will take approximately 860 cubic yards of structural rock fill, geotextile fabric, and soil above and below the high tide line of the Coquille River to stabilize approximately 240-feet of streambank.

The work would be conducted with heavy equipment operating from the top of bank during ebb tides when the discharge location is dry.

The revetment would be constructed during the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife preferred in-water work period for this reach of the Coquille River, October 1 to February 15, or under an approved in-water work window extension.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District is soliciting comments on the proposed work.
