A Seattle company will remove the 66-foot long dock that washed away in the 2011 Japan tsunami and drifted to the Oregon Coast earlier this month.
The Vancouver, Washington branch of Ballard Diving and Salvage will dismantle the dock on shore and remove it for $84,155.
Ballard Diving and Salvage has been hired for similar removals, including hauling up the sunken "Deep Sea" crab boat from the bottom of Whidbey Island's Penn Cove.
Since washing ashore on Agate Beach north of Newport, Oregon, the dock has become a tourist attraction. Some have suggested leaving it on the beach. The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department said portions of the dock will be used for a local memorial.
Bids for dismantling and removing the dock ranged from $79,922 to $240,000, according to the Oregon Department of Parks and Recreation.
A steady stream of tsunami debris has made its way to Washington's shores in the last few weeks. Near Neah Bay, kayakers found pieces of what may be a house, as well as other household items such as a bottle of cherry cough syrup and a laundry hamper.
A 20-foot fiberglass that drifted to Ilwaco last week was identified as being from the Japanese island of Honshu -- and the owner has said he doesn't want it back.
Both Oregon and Washington have asked for federal help to pay for the cost of removing not only the tsunami debris that has already reached the Northwest, but even more items expected to wash up in coming months.
