While tourists flock to see and photograph the iconic towers of the Golden Gate Bridge every day, it has been five years since anyone has taken a dip and looked below the water line.
That will soon change, as the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District is set to approve a $262,000 contract today with Infrastructure Engineers LLC to conduct routine inspections and growth removal on the bridge’s concrete base and foundation.
The International Marine Contractors Association’s (IMCA) has published ‘Guidelines for the Shared Use of Sensors for ROV and Survey Purposes’ (IMCA S 025 / R 022), which is available on the Association’s website.

The ADCI Audit Initiative is designed to make ADCI companies stronger, smarter and their divers more safe. All members who complete this audit will have the peace of mind of knowing where they are succeeding and those areas that they can work on. Those companies who do not submit to an audit by March 1, 2020 face losing their ADCI membership.

Commercial divers work for a variety of different industries, including aquaculture, fish farming, construction, offshore oil and gas, law enforcement and utilities. They may be undertaking inspections, maintenance or construction work. On any given day, a commercial diver can be found breaking up rock with a hydraulic jackhammer, pouring concrete under water and rigging up cars to be hoisted out of a lake.
Regardless of the job, occupational health and safety needs to be the first thing that commercial divers think about before they dive in.
The rusted, barnacle-encrusted anchor was wedged into the bottom off Quadra Island when commercial diver Richard Hamer came across it last week. And after hauling it out of the water Feb. 14, Hamer is hoping to prove that it came from a Spanish galleon or similar-aged sailing vessel.
Plans for the UK getting a new, really, really deep pool called the Blue Abyss, making it the largest facility of its kind in the world, appear to be moving forward, with a location now slated for Liverpool.
