Corps hosts Sept. 13 Public Scoping Meeting in Coos Bay

Published Sept. 8, 2017
PORTLAND, Ore. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is hosting an open house-style public scoping meeting for the community and stakeholders to talk with Corps staff about the environmental review of the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay’s proposed modifications to the Federal Navigation Channel. 

Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017 from 3 to 7:30 p.m.
Coos Bay Public Library, 525 Anderson Ave., Coos Bay, Oregon 

The public is welcome to drop by anytime. The Corps also will accept written input on issues to consider in the analysis of potential environmental effects of the proposed project.  

The Corps’ environmental impact statement will support consideration of approvals and permits required prior to construction. The Port’s proposed project is made up of several actions to improve navigation efficiency, reduce shipping transportation costs and facilitate the shipping industry’s transition to larger, more efficient vessels.

Learn more about the EIS process and how to submit scoping input through Oct. 3, 2017 at the Corps’ EIS website:

Portland District’s first mission, eliminating impediments to navigation on the Pacific Northwest's rivers, dates back to 1871. The Corps maintains safe and reliable channels, harbors and waterways for the transportation of commerce, support to national security and recreation.
