TOLEDO, Ore. — Yaquina Bay hopes to be a lot cleaner thanks to a new cleanup grant.
The Port of Toledo awarded the Yaquina River Cleanup Project more than $230,000 from their Marine Navigation Improvement Fund.
The grant will be used to clean up sediment contamination around the Fred Wahl Dry Dock.
This will supplement more than $300,000 already collected from other groups.
The Port has completed extensive studies to determine the boundaries of contamination and the best method for removal.
The project is scheduled for August of 2014.
