On 17 March 1981, the installation of eleven fleet moorings in the lagoon at Diego Garcia was completed. These moorings were installed in response to new Navy requirements for support of the Indian Ocean Battle Group. The eleven moorings consist of four different classes of moorings which are comprised of seventeen buoy systems. Each of these buoy systems is cathodically protected with zinc anodes and wire rope continuity cable. Now that these moorings have been in the water for over a year, NAVFACENGCOM desires to conduct an underwater inspection in order to determine the condition of these moorings and the effectiveness of the installed cathodic protection systems, as a part of NAVFACENGCOMs Fleet Mooring Maintenance Program. The purpose of this Project Execution Plan PEP is to define the responsibilities of the inspection team and to provide detailed guidelines for the underwater inspection of the eleven moorings which are currently operated and maintained by the Naval Support Office NSO, Diego Garcia.
