Garibaldi Harbor Dredging Continues

The State of Oregon owned dredge ‘THE LAURA’ will continue dredging operations at the Garibaldi Harbor boat basin, reported the port officials.

According to Michael Saindon, the Manager of the Port of Garibaldi, the ongoing dredge work is critical to the safety of the various users of the marina, and the port’s ability to support the numerous small business owners in the area.

With the help of the Port of Coos Bay and the State-owned dredge, we can keep the port dredged at a reasonable cost and not have to incur debt to keep the Port running,” said Michael Saindon.

The dredging project, which started in mid-October, is scheduled to last until December 21st, 2017.

The vessel, an Ellicot-360SL swing ladder suction dredge, is capable of dredging to up to -20’, with a material pumping rate of over 200 cubic yards per hour through 3000’ of 10” pipe.

It was purchased by the State following extensive conversations with the South Coast Ports Coalition, including the Ports of Alsea, Bandon, Brookings, Gold Beach, Port Orford, Siuslaw, Umpqua, and Coos Bay.

Initially, “THE LAURA” was slated to only be used at Ports along the south coast to dredge launch ramps and marinas, but is now being used for dredging projects throughout the State of Oregon.
