time consuming process and is vital to cost estimating and preparation of
the Scope of Work.  To minimize cost and time, a site survey of the activity
and facilities is conducted when funds and manpower are available prior to
the planning effort.  A site survey will accelerate the planning processes
and a study of the facilities data will determine the level of inspection
required.
1.3.2 Scope-of-Work.  The scope-of-work is specifically tailored for
e a c h f a c i l i t y .  The inspection procedure described in the scope-of-work, is
determined by such factors as the type of material and construction of the
facility, as well as its apparent condition. Sufficient flexibility is
planned into the inspection so that procedures can be altered on site if
significant differences exist between the findings and the expected
condition.  The inspection confirms or updates the as-built drawings and
provides detailed measurements of the structural elements for assessment of
the structural condition.  The levels of effort, the number of measurements,
and the extent of structural analysis are primary decisions that must be
made in planning the inspection.  The procedure at each facility is to first
perform a Level I "swim-by" visual inspection from the splash zone to the
mudline.  Then, a portion of each facility is cleaned and inspected more
closely; some sections visually and others with instruments.  The extent and
type of cleaning, visual examination, and structure measurements are
dependent on function, use, M&R history, known biofouling and deterioration,
water depth and temperature, and structure accessibility.
1.3.2.1 Detailed Inspections. The scope-of-work generally
specifies the number of piles (bearing and batter) and the net surface area
of bulkheads which are to be cleaned and inspected.  I t i s d e s i r a b l e , t o
select the piles to be inspected so that all facility sections with expected
similar physical conditions and/or similar degrading influences will be
represented.  Some areas, such as the perimeter piles where degradation is
commonly high, warrant total representation.  In parts of a facility where
there are consistent degrading factors in a concentrated area such as
chemical effluent discharges or stray electrical fields; a high percentage,
if not all, of the piles should be inspected.  When all components cannot be
inspected, engineered sampling techniques shall be used.
1.3.2.2 On-Site Adjustments.  Although each statement-of -work is
prepared with sufficient detail to identify the quantity of piles or
bulkheads to be cleaned and examined, the specific method of selecting
samples may have to be determined or revised on-site.  Areas to be
photographed aredetermined on-site by the dive team leader with the
Engineer-in-Charge (EIC).  Procedures should be altered on-site if
significant differences in inspection conditions are found.
1 . 3 . 2 . 3 J o i n t E f f o r t s .  For inspections which are performed by
contract and in-house efforts, the statement of work is supplemented with an
execution plan for the in-house work.  These documents specify: the role of
each; specific tasks for each; the equipment each will need; where
responsibilities overlap and are separate; and their schedules.
