The objective of the Underwater Facility Assessments conducted at the Trident Refit Facility, Naval Submarine Base, Bangor, Washington is to provide a generalized structural condition report of various elements of the Drydock. The inspection was performed by a team of engineerdivers using visualtactile and non-destructive techniques. Typical and unusual conditions were photo-documented. The elements of the Drydock which were inspected included 1878 exposed steel sheet piles, the concrete abutment and the caisson. The Drydock was accepted by the Navy in December of 1980. The condition of the exposed steel sheet piling is excellent as is the condition of the concrete abutment and the caisson. No repairs are necessary at this time. The Drydock should be reinspected in three 3 years. The estimated cost to re-inspect the Drydock is 40,000.00. Author
