Dredging Works Kick Off on Charleston Marina Inner Boat Basin

The Oregon International Port of Coos Bay kicked off the dredging operations in the Inner Boat Basin of the Charleston Marina on January 25, 2019. 

The first section of dredge pipe has been placed and anchored at Site G and is deployed alongside the inner basin channel through the culvert under Alaska Packers Lane around Coast Guard Point and out to Site G.

During the work, aimed to hydraulically dredge up to 20,000 cubic yards of material from the Charleston Marina Boat Basin, the dredge material disposal operations will occur solely with hydraulic pipeline at Site G during an ebb tide.

The project, set to be completed in a 4-5 week period, is located at the Charleston inner boat basin, near the confluences of South Slough, Joe Ney Slough and Coos Bay, Charleston, Coos County, Oregon.

Charleston marina personnel employed the dredge Laura for this project, together with the tender vessel Ms. SoCo and a work barge/Super-Fish-All.
