Webinar Description:

The underwater munitions response program has unique challenges. This presentation will discuss some of these challenges from both the Navy and Contractor perspective. The Navy discussion will include detection, location, and remediation of Munitions and Explosives of Concern (MEC) at underwater sites, and the oceanographic conditions at some of the sites. The Contractor’s perspective is related to elements that should be considered during the planning and performance of munitions response projects in underwater/marine environments including approach, application of current and emerging technologies, challenges, and safety. Considerations for the protection of natural resources/critical habitat will also be discussed.
