Marina Closure for Dredging in Depot Slough
The Army Corps of Engineers has contracted HME Construction to dredge the Authorized Channel in Depot Slough, Toledo. HME began work in early August at the entrance of Depot Slough from the Yaquina River. To accommodate dredging, all vessels have been relocated from the Port’s docks and the docks have been removed. The Port has also contracted with HME Construction to dredge the adjacent Transient Dock. These docks are also closed and are relocated for the duration of the project. There will be no dock access at the Port of Toledo’s Marina until completion of the project, by the 2nd week in September.
Maintenance dredging removes the build up of sediment that naturally occurs over time due to currents, storm events, and erosion. The Army Corps of Engineers maintains the authorized channel in the Yaquina River and Depot Slough which allows vessels to travel from Newport to Toledo. The Corps last dredged the authorized channel of Depot Slough in 2016.
This is the first time the Port has dredged the Transient Dock since its installation in 2013. The build up of sediment under the dock has reached critical levels, with the dock setting in the mud during lower tides. The Port faced permitting challenges with dredging this dock due to FEMA’s designation of Depot Slough as a regulated floodway. The designation and floodplain development regulations imposed a requirement for a “No Rise Certificate.” The Port was required to have an engineer’s analysis to prove that maintenance dredging of accumulated sediment will not raise the flood level. The requirement was contested, to no avail, and the analysis was completed at public expense to obtain permits and have the project completed by HME Construction.
Completion of these projects will allow for better vessel access to the Port’s tenant, Yaquina Boat Equipment’s docks and to the Port’s recreational marina.

Notice of Dredging of Depot Slough and the Transient Dock
The Army Corps of Engineers has contracted HME Constructions to dredge the Authorized Channel in Depot Slough. HME Construction will begin working in Depot Slough, August 1, 2023. The contractor will work around the Port’s Marina until after the Wooden Boat Show, August 19-20. Immediately following the Wooden Boat Show, Port crew will disassemble and remove the docks to facilitate dredging of the marina.
All vessels moored at the Marina will be removed by Wednesday, August 16th in preparation of the Wooden Boat Show and subsequent removal of the docks and boathouses. The docks and boathouses will be returned and reinstalled as soon as possible, after the completion of dredging. The Port anticipates vessels will be able to move back to our docks prior to September 15th.
The dredge sediment will be barged down river for ocean disposal on high tides. Please be aware of additional river traffic during this work period.
