Contracted by the owner of the SS Davy Crockett, a former WWII U.S. Navy Liberty Ship, Ballard Diving & Salvage completed the required clean up of contaminants that posed imminent threat to the environment according to the United States Coast Guard.  After significant structural failure, an Administrative Order by the USCG to the owner was issued for immediate action late last week.

Ballard Diving & Salvage responded with crews trained in salvage operations.  Response included confined space teams and commercial dive teams as well as remote underwater vehicles with sonar to locate and evaluate all sources of oil on and within the vessel. The SS Davy Crockett is 442-ft in length and was constructed in 1942, currently located near Camas Washington on the Columbia River.
