1 p. This essay by Walter V. Woehlke describes the history of the decision to build the jetty at the mouth of the Columbia River, and details some of the difficulties faced by engineers due to the forces of river current, ocean, and weather. The construction of the Celilo Falls canal is also mentioned. The three accompanying photographs show the seven-mile-long jetty, both in calm seas and with storm-driven waves breaking over it, and a view of rock pillars upstream near the area of the canal.
