9,200 buckets later, Corps dredging halfway complete at Gold Beach
A clamshell dredge and barge sits in the Rogue River near the Port of Gold Beach, Ore., Aug. 31. Without consistent dredging by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), the port could lose out on recreation income sprouting from upwards of 35,000 visitors per year for jet boat tours and around 75-100 fishing boats a day (at least 10 fishermen in the distance), according to port officials.
