The Port of Coos Bay has partnered with Business Oregon to operate the state-owned dredge The Laura to provide dredging for Oregon's smaller ports. This allows smaller ports a more affordable option for dredging. Port of Coos Bay will maintain and provide stewardship over the dredge through this program. The Port of Coos Bay and the Port of Alsea have partnered together to dredge Port of Alsea's marina which is vital to their recreational activities in the summer time.
