Dredging is Underway at Charleston Marina Complex

With the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay launching its dredging work at the Charleston Marina Complex near the Point Adams Facility and the Russell Marine fuel dock, mariners should tread carefully as they move in the inner basin and near the outflow pipe in the Marina Complex and within the Coos Bay Harbor.

Dredging, which is expected to take place through the rest of the year, is being done to improve navigability and accessibility within the area. Within the inner basin, orange pencil buoys mark the outflow pipe, which expands into the bay from the marina, and is marked with four large, white floats, the port said.

Mariners should move carefully near the dredge pipe area and should reach out to port dredging crews for more instruction and help in navigation at 541-294-1555 or 541-294-3234.
