Siuslaw River Shoreline Erosion Feasibility Study

Siuslaw River, Oregon

USCG Station Shoreline Protection, Florence, OR

Coast & Harbor Engineering performed a feasibility study along the shoreline of the Siuslaw River at the Oregon Coast Guard Station as part of a project to protect the property and upland infrastructure from further erosion. CHE collected existing data, conducted a coastal engineering analysis, and determined short and long-term shoreline erosion protection alternatives. The alternatives were compared to select the one that, in addition to the cost benefit, would also be more advanced in working with the coastal processes to maximize the project lifetime without requiring maintenance or impacting to adjacent shorelines.
