MAINTENANCE AND OPERATION: MAINTENACE OF WATERFRONT FACILITIES
|Publication Date:||19 June 2001|
UFC 4-150-07 is a guide for the inspection, maintenance, and repair of waterfront structures and related facilities. It is a source of reference for planning, estimating, and performing technical maintenance and repair work; and may serve as a training manual for waterfront facilities maintenance personnel.
This document provides guidance for maintenance and repair of waterfront facilities to retain them in continuous readiness for use by the Fleet and in support of military marine operations.
The types of waterfront facilities covered include:
- Berthing facilities for mooring and for providing support to ships and craft.
- Drydocks used for modification, inspection, maintenance and repair of ships.
- Components of waterfront structures such as piling, dolphins, bulkheads, and decks.
Fender systems are briefly considered. Refer to MO-104.1, Maintenance of Fender Systems and Camels, for detailed coverage.
Not specifically considered in this document are:
- Coastal protection structures designed to protect shorelines or harbors.
- Components of waterfront structures such as utility distribution systems and fleet moorings.
The maintenance and repair of coastal protection structures is included in the Army Corps of Engineers, Shore Protection Manual, Volumes I and II. Repair of coastal structures is covered in more detail in USACE, Coastal Engineering Technical Notes and Repair, Evaluation, Maintenance, and Rehabilitation Technical Notes. The maintenance of utility distribution systems is covered by various service manuals and commercial publications. NAVFAC MO-124, Mooring Maintenance Manual, provides details on the maintenance of fleet mooring systems.
These documents, and all Government documents referenced in this document, provide additional guidance primarily to DOD and U.S. Coast Guard activities.
They may also be useful, however, to commercial firms that provide waterfront repair for these activities. \1\ /1/
