Use of cars for fill

The Division of State Lands used this photograph in 1972 to illustrate problems associated with the uncontrolled use of various spoils, junked cars, and other debris for fill along river banks. Oregon's Removal-Fill Law (ORS 196.800-990), enacted in 1967, requires people who plan to remove or fill material in waters of the state to obtain a permit from the Department of State Lands.
