Title Bar at entrance to harbor at Yaquina Bay, Oregon. Letter from the Acting Secretary of War, transmitting, with a letter from the Chief of Engineers, report of the examination of harbor at Yaquina Bay, Oregon, with a view of obtaining 25 feet of water at mean low water upon the bar at the entrance
Names United States. Congress. House of Representatives. Committee on Rivers and Harbors
Date Issued 1892 (iso8601)
Note In 1892, the bar at the entrance of Yaquina Bay was 14 feet deep at low tide. Requests to deepen the entrance to 25 feet came from local residents, including supporters of T. Egenton Hogg's Oregon Pacific Railroad, which had its terminus on the bay at Yaquina. The request to deepen the harbor entrance was found to be impractical and too expensive. The report includes a letter supporting the proposed project from William M. Hoag, receiver for the Oregon Pacific Railroad.
