Letter from the Secretary of War, transmitting, with a letter from the Chief of Engineers, report of examination of Yaquina River, Oregon, from Yaquina to Elk City Public Deposited

http://ir.library.oregonstate.edu/concern/technical_reports/1g05fc138

Described the Yaquina Bay and River from Yaquina to Elk City, the communities and industries there, and considered proposed channel deepening. "The General Government expended nearly $700,000 in providing a suitable entrance to Yaquina Harbor, but no advantage was taken of this improvement. On the contrary the commerce, which was never large, dwindled away to a few hundred tons, and the improvement was abandoned about 1905. Under these conditions, it is not probable that the stretch of river under consideration would be extensively used if improved." Recommended against further improvements.
