Old DNR pier removal begins

Crews this week began dismantling the dilapidated pier at the old state Department of Natural Resources marine station at Gull Harbor in Budd Inlet.

Some 400 tons of wood debris, including more than 230 creosote-soaked pilings, are slated for removal and disposal at a hazardous waste landfill in Oregon, DNR restoration land manager Monica Shoemaker said.

It's the latest in a series of restoration projects on the four-acre shoreline property that one day could lead to beach access for the public and continued use of the site for storage of marine vessels and equipment by multiple state and local government agencies.

But much work remains before the long-range plan is fulfilled, said Blain Reeves, assistant manager of the DNR aquatic resources division.

After the aging wharf is removed, DNR will start testing for contaminants in the sediments around the dock where more than 100 mothballed Navy vessels - from warships to patrol boats - were moored from 1946 to 1972.
