Project Title: Tillamook Bay and Bar 2. Organization Name and address: Port of Garibaldi PO Box 10 Garibaldi, OR 97118 3. Primary Contact name, phone number, mobile phone number, fax number and email: 4. Project Location Address (if different from Organization): Same 5. Please describe the requesting organization’s main activities, and whether it is a public, private non-profit, or private for-profit entity: The Port of Garibaldi is a public port district. 6. Briefly describe the activity or project for which funding is requested (please keep to 500 words or less.) Repair and restore the Tillamook Bay Jetties. The north and south jetties at the entrance to Tillamook Bay have experienced damage to both jetty heads, trunks, and north jetty root. A recent apparent increase in the Pacific Ocean wave climate has exposed both jetties to more extreme storm waves, especially the south jetty which is more exposed to southwesterly storm events. In addition to the increased concern regarding jetty stability, there is concern that further recession of the jetty heads will contribute to already hazardous navigation conditions over the ebb tidal shoal or bar. The requested $6 million in FY 2010 for the Tillamook Bay and Bar will allow the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to continue the restoration and repair of the North and South jetties. Specifically, this will allow the Corps to place the rock and complete the repairs on the north jetty. In December 2003, the Corps completed the Major Maintenance Report for the jetties. The report recommends that, in addition to the revetment (which was completed in 2004), 200 foot caps be constructed at the heads of both jetties, and that additional work be done on both jetty trunks. 7. Has this project received federal appropriations funding in past fiscal years? Yes. 7a. If yes, please provide fiscal year, Department, Account, and funding amount of any previous funding.
