Putting finishing touches on the International Terminal

Final dredging in front of the newly renovated Newport International Terminal. To accommodate larger log ships.

Final dredging in front of the newly renovated Newport International Terminal to accommodate larger log ships.

Natt McDougal Co. (NMC) is completing the final dredging of approximately 2500 yards of siltstone. The siltstone is all that remains from the summer Army Corps dredging that removed approximately 5500 yards of silt material. Upon completion, the terminal’s west berth will have a depth of 35 feet, deep enough to load 5-million board feet of logs onto a single ship. The contract with NMC will also calls for the installation final rip rap under the terminal.

After that, NMC will remove earthen berms behind the Oregon Coast Aquarium to install a bigger culvert to maximize tidal influences between a decommissioned log pond and Yaquina Bay to mitigate the fisheries habitat loss from the terminal dredging.

Then NMC will turn its attention to another attempt at getting more mitigation value installing more habitat that fish love – Eel Grass. They’ll be altering the Eel Grass site as part of the unfinished mitigation for construction of the new NOAA MOC-P facility. The $657,000 work order will bring the port one step closer to finishing the Terminal project and NOAA projects.
