Divers Inspect Locks and Dams
Divers from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Huntington (W.V.) District recently completed inspections of Locks and Dams 1, 2 and 3 on the Cape Fear River. The divers check for wear and tear on the mechanical gear that opens and closes the locks, as well as routine maintenance. There are 16 members on the Huntington District Dive Team who specialize in underwater maintenance to include welding. Based in Marietta, Ohio, they travel within other USACE districts to perform maintenance on various dams, and lock and dam systems for flood control. (USACE photos by Hank Heusinkveld)
