Memaloose dredging about to begin

Dredging work on the Memaloose Boat Ramp was given the final go-ahead by the Tillamook County Board of Commissioners last week, reports.

The Memaloose dredging project has been long-awaited by Tillamook County anglers who have found one of the two boat ramps at the site unpassable for several years.

Permitting work on the project began in 2019 but owing to the large number of agencies that had to approve of the work, the process was repeatedly delayed.

Billeter Marine will be doing the work at a cost of just over $216,000 and expect to finish the project by February 15. photo

Director of Community Development, Sarah Absher, told commissioners that she expects the line to start operations in March in time for spring break.
