An inquiring mind queried News Lincoln County about progress at restoring Dock 1 at Depoe Bay and the testing of the town’s new tsunami warning sirens.
We have it on good authority that the new dock floats are in and work continues to get the “in water” work done before the middle of next month. After that, all the “above water” work will proceed to include the rest of the dock work and the finger piers. Completion time is expected to be around mid-May, according to Depoe Bay Public Works chief Terry Owings.
The tsunami sirens are still being installed. All five should be installed this week. Then additional communications equipment between city hall and the sirens must be installed. Owings predicts the first test of the sirens will be in about a month. A strong suggestion from the city council is that the testing be done using songs of whales. Owings said they can do that.
