From CEATI: As we look to the future of the hydropower industry, hydro utilities and dam owners are searching for new and innovative ways to inspect, maintain, operate, and manage their systems. New technologies and tools are constantly under development in the areas of hydrology, operations and planning, inspecting and maintaining powerhouse equipment, and surveillance
The Dept. of Natural Resources has identified at least 204 derelict vessels statewide. Those are sunken boats that can cause pollution and safety issues. View the video here.

May 2017- October 2017 Associated Underwater Services was subcontracted to perform the diving portion of the Nine Mile Falls Sediment Bypass Project. This project entailed two phases of work. Phase one was primarily focused on sediment removal and relocation. The second phase was focused on the installation of new dam components. The work scope included:
BP’s Cherry Point refinery has provided a significant portion of U.S. energy needs for more than 30 years. It is located along Pacific coastal waters in northwest Washington state and is the fourth largest refinery on the U.S. west coast. The refinery processes a large share of Alaska North Slope crude oil, more than 225,000
RSW (Removable Spillway Weir) is a 1,100-ton prototype fish bypass structure installed in spillbay 1 on the upstream side of the Dam. The RSW is hinged on the dam face and rotates to an up or down position using ballast tanks. The buoyancy tanks are operated by a computerized system that controls ascent and descent.
Associated Underwater Services is working for Pacific Pile and Marine under Pier 54, Ivar’s Acre of Clams, Seattle Washington. The work consists of dredging to cut existing timber piles, designated for replacement, one foot below mud-line. The timber piles are being replaced with telescopic steel piles. ❮ ❯
