Corps reviews Wildish
and Rogue River projects
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks comments regarding two permit applications for projects in local waters.
Wildish Land Co. wants to remove sand and gravel from land within the 100-year floodplain adjacent to the McKenzie and Willamette rivers, to construct a flood protection berm to protect from potential flooding and to construct a side channel to enhance fish and turtle habitats.
In the Rogue River near Agness, Rogue River Jet Boats wants to maintain boat passage by removing up to 500 cubic yards of material with an excavator, at the Illahe Bar.
The corps seeks comments by June 1. For more information, call (503) 808-4510 or visit the permit section on the Portland District's Web site at www.nwp.usace.army.mil.
