A diving crew will be on the Dan River Tuesday and Wednesday, July 19-20, to conduct a routine inspection of the Schoolfield Dam. This inspection will not affect boating and recreational activities.

Danville Utilities has contracted with Marine Solutions, a Kentucky-based engineering and commercial diving firm, to conduct the inspection. A crew will inspect the concrete face of the dam above and below the water surface. In addition, the crew will inspect the dam’s metal and wooden structures.

“On Tuesday, they will inspect what they can of the structure above the water level,” Barry Dunkley, division director for water and wastewater treatment, said Monday. “Then, they will use divers to view the rest of the structure underwater.”

Dunkley said the crew also will record video of the dam’s surface.

“They will be looking for cracks and other damage,” Dunkley said. “They also will look for silt buildup.”

The last inspection took place in August 2014. The inspection involved the dam’s concrete, metal and wooden structures above the water surface.
