Below is an update from Oregon Parks and Recreation Department on the latest with the dock and terrible foam debris incident at Lighthouse Beach.

01/29 – OPRD update
“Dock Owner – The owners of the dock have responded and have a 4-5 person crew cutting up the concrete into smaller sizes that will be removed by an inmate crew when they are done.  Their crews have also been assisting with the clean-up.  Currently it is their responsibility for clean-up.

OPRD – Thus far OPRD has had 9 inmate crews working the beach clean-up.  We are working with the dock owner for more crews in the near future to remove the concrete and the foam.  Sunset Bay park staff have been assisting with garbage runs between the beach accesses. 160 yards of foam have been removed from the beach.  We have emptied within one week three 30 yd, two 25 yd, and one 20 yd dumpsters.  Of that, Washed Ashore retrieved a 20′ U-Haul truck worth of new art material.

Additional Docks – Three docks were removed from Winchester Bay and Horsfall that were also a part of this event.  Those docks were removed by Mast Brothers and were easily hauled off the beach, but at a substantial financial cost.”
