MORRO BAY HARBOR DREDGING- YOQUINA

The Ongoing Dredging Project….  The Army Corp of Engineers dredging boat- The Yoquina- is back for a bit more work.  For the moment- it is docked at our pier-

The mouth of the Morro Bay harbor requires periodic dredging to maintain a seafloor deep enough for semi- large vessels to be able to safely enter our harbor.   In late 2009-2010, we had the full dredging project underway for numerous months.  Sand and silt from the mouth of the harbor was dredged up and piped onto the beaches just north of Morro Rock. The beaches were re-built while clearing the mouth of the harbor. Prior to the 2010 dredging project, the last major dredging project was in 2001.
