The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has completed dredged material placement at Cape Horn, Washington.

The project was designed to provide beach nourishment to an approximately 2500 foot stretch of shoreline on the Washington side of the Columbia River.

The Port of Portland’s Dredge Oregon began work on Sept. 25 and completed placement 13 days ahead the anticipated completion date of Oct. 20.

It’s great to see the completed Cape Horn sand placement project,” said Chuck Beyer, Wahkiakum County’s public works director. “There we’re many steps in the process, but I’m happy that through our partnership with the Corps we’ve been able to deliver this to our community members.”

There were three critical steps necessary to place the material on private property.

Making this happen took coordination at many levels,” said Karla Ellis, Portland District’s chief of waterways maintenance. “We appreciate the cooperation we received from the individual landowners, Wahkaikum County and our many state and federal partners.”

These steps included a Memorandum of Agreement between the Corps and Wahkiakum County, signed right-of-entry agreements between the Corps and private landowners and finally, approved permitting from state and federal agencies.
