Turning Basin, Naval Station Mayport, Jacksonville, FL
February 15 – July 16, 2015
Underwater Mechanix Services (UMX) was hired by Fluor Federal Solutions to perform an underwater inspection of an effluent outfall pipe located in the Turning Basin at Naval Station Mayport. The pipeline was past due for inspection. UMX found areas in need of repair including a leak near one of the diffuser flanges in the main trunk line. Also, UMX found discrepancies in the size of the pipeline with the previous reports. UMX was contacted for a return visit to perform repairs to the leaking pipe line as well as install three USCGC-approved marker buoys to alert ship traffic of submerged structures.
