Stormwater Waste Management
Stormwater is the rain that falls on paved surfaces and flows as runoff which may contain pollutants to waterways. Small pollutants can add up to have a big impact on the water quality to these waterways. Therefore, the Port of Coos Bay is developing a Stormwater Waste Management Program to prevent, decrease and eradicate the effects of the polluted stormwater to the South Slough and the Coos Bay harbor.

Coos Bay Rail Link (CBR) partners with Smartway Transport to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution that is created by freight transportation. It is a program run by the United States Environmental Protection agency. Through this program, CBR can improve efficiency of cargo through monitoring and analyzing freight supply chain operations. In addition, the Port and CBR strive to adopt fuel efficient technologies and environmentally friendly operational practices early on.
