The objective of the underwater facility assessment is to provide a generalized structural condition report of selected facilities within the activity. The facilities are Carrier Berth C-1, Carrier Berth C-2, the Bulkhead East of Carrier Berth C-2, Bravo Wharves B-1, B-2 and B-3, Destroyer Berths D-1, D-2, D-3 and D-4 and the Small Craft Berth. Each facility was inspected by a team of engineerdivers using a combination of visualtactile and ultrasonic techniques. Critical elements were photo-documented. All facilities inspected appear to be in fair to good condition. No facility was observed to have advanced structural deterioration or damage such that its structural capacity or function should be downgraded. All facilities inspected exhibited some degree of corrosion. Generally the amount of corrosion observed was directly proportional to age. However, Carrier Berth C-1 experienced some localized high corrosive activity.
