74th Congress, 1st session, House report no.374, 1935. House Resolution 5777 had requested a preliminary examination of the Siletz River and this report shows that the resolution met with a favorable response. β€œThe floods of 1933 caused severe damage to all portions of the Siletz River Valley and damaging floods occur at intervals from 2 to 4 years. It is believed these floods warrant investigation with a view to determining flood-protective measures.” A subsequent unpublished report by the Army Corps of Engineers (March 8, 1937) recommended against flood control work in the lightly populated Siletz watershed.
