REPORT ON COOS
BAY BAR AND HARBOR
The following report on Coos Bay
was furnished the Marshfleld Cham
ber of Commerce by Col. Roessler.
It includes data on the recent survey
made by Engineer Carroll. of tho
Coos Bay Is a tidal es"tuary on
the Pacific' coast In Oregon, about
400 miles north of San Francisco,
Cal. Except Humbolt, it is tho
principal harbor between, tho mouth
of the Columbia river and San
Francisco. Before Improvement the
obstructions consisted of tho usual
bar in the ocean at the entrance of
the bay and of shoals Inside the
bay near Its entrance formed by
sand which blows down the beach
during northwesterly winds. The
depth of the ocean bar was often
but 10 feet at low tide.
Tho original project for the im
provement of Coos bay received
the approval of the secretary of war
November 14, 1879. It provided
for tho construction of a jetty
from a point about 250 yards below
tho southern extremity of Fossil
Point, on a line toward the east end
of Coos Head, this line curving so
as to be directed at its outer end to
the head, or a little north of it,
tho structure to be of wood and
stone, or stono, as should bo found
best. The estimate cost was ?G00,
000. The amount expended on tho or
iginal project was 213,750, with
which 1,700 feet of timber crib and
rubble-stone jetty was built.
.Tho existing project, adopted by
act of congress approved September
19, 1890, is that of a board of en
gineers dated October 27, 1889, and
It approved for obtaining and main
taining a channel 20 feet deep at
low -tide through tho ocean bar 'at
the entrance to tho hay by confin
ing the entrance between two hlgh
tldo 'rubble-stono jetties, the north
Jetty to be 9,000 feet long and tho
south jetty 4,200 feet long.
The estimated total cost of the
existing project, exclusive of tho
amount expended on tho origi
nal project, is ?2,4GG,412.20. The
amount expended thereon up to
tho close of the fiscal year ending
Juno 30, 1907, is $090,988.05, of
which $171,988.05 was for main
tenance of Improvement.
The expenditures on this im
provement to 'date have resulted In
the construction of tho submerged
Jetty" near. Fossil Point under the
