Going through proper channels

Siuslaw River markers get update

Jan. 20, 2021 — Contractors working under the direction of the Army Corps of Engineers worked this past weekend resetting the channel markers for the Siuslaw River Estuary and the area immediately adjacent to the Port of Siuslaw. The work also included the reset of markers in the area of the North Jetty and was scheduled to be completed on Monday. Channel markers are companion buoys that indicate that the boating channel is between them. When facing upstream, or coming from the open sea, the red buoys are located on the right (starboard) side of the channel; the green buoys will be on the left (port) side of the channel.
