Abstract:

In August, 1981, an underwater inspection was conducted to assess the condition of the submerged portions of the piers, wharfs, and quaywalls forming the perimeter of slips 1, 3, 4, and 5. A visual swim-by inspection was made of all facilities under investigation, and a more detailed visual and tactile inspection was made of approximately 20 percent of the components. This detailed inspection included wire brush cleaning and scraping of selected areas, and documentation of conditions with color photography.
