In 1949, the Army Corps of Engineers dredged Coos Bay. “Despite objection of local residents, commercial clam diggers, and the Fish Commission” the Corps dumped dredging spoils on a commercially important clam bed, and destroyed much of it. “This year, with an earlier start and more data, it is hoped the clam populations can be protected.”(p.1) Proposed dredging sites were cataloged and areas where dumping should not occur were noted. The report includes hand-drawn maps.
