Coast Guard to Open Seasonal Stations in Southern Oregon After Dredging

The U.S. Coast Guard said in their latest announcement that they are scheduled to open their two southern Oregon seasonal stations in Bandon and Gold Beach again this summer. 

The seasonal station in Gold Beach is planned to open after dredging of the Rogue River Federal Navigation Project is complete. Weather permitting, this will occur around mid-July, said the Coast Guard.

The Coquille River station in Bandon is expected to open on Memorial Day weekend.

Starting on May 25th, personnel from Station Chetco River will be in Gold Beach periodically to conduct shore-side patrols, education and outreach emphasizing boating safety.

The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers were unable to complete dredging at Gold Beach during the in-water work window for 2017.

The sediment in the Federal Navigation Channel was coarser than anticipated, which caused failure to the dredging equipment. The equipment downtime extended beyond the in-water work window and into the beginning of the salmon migration season.
