The New ASCE Waterfront Facilities Inspection and Assessment Manual

Waterfront infrastructure represents a significant investment and owners have a vested interest in maintaining it and extending the service life of these aging assets. Exposed to the harsh marine environment, these assets are subject to degradation more than most non-marine assets. In addition, most owners are interested in protecting life safety and the environment through proactive and cost-effective maintenance. Recognizing these drivers, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)/Coasts, Oceans, Ports and Rivers Institute (COPRI) Ports and Harbors Committee’s Waterfront Inspection Task Committee has developed a new manual to guide the inspection of waterfront assets. The new manual, entitled “Manual of Practice 130—Waterfront Facilities Inspection and Assessment Manual”, provides comprehensive guidance to owners and practitioners for the inspection and maintenance of waterfront structures both above water and underwater, as well as associated mooring hardware, fender systems, utilities, and appurtenant features.
