Fear of oil spill turns out to be Depoe Bay Dredge Spoils offshore

Contractor employees monitoring dredge transfer of Depoe Bay “muck” to off-shore dump sites.

The Coast Guard is investigating a sizeable discoloration of ocean waters off Depoe Bay.   The citizen caller described it as an oil slick.  Coast Guard and other observers inspected the polluted area and determined that the dark dis-coloration is from dredge spoils from the bottom of Depoe Bay that are being deposited offshore where it can sink to the bottom.  Obviously, some of it is failing to float to the bottom or there’s something else going. The Coast Guard is investigating.
