Gravel drag line near Corvallis

A Corvallis Sand and Gravel Company drag line taking gravel from the Willamette River. The State Land Board fought a 20 year legal battle with the company over ownership of the riverbed that had changed course into a different channel. The U.S. Supreme Court eventually heard the case.
