Searching for Hidden Treasures

June 13, 2016 by eTrac

Recently, eTrac teamed up with the National Park Service to perform surveys around Torpedo Wharf in the San Francisco Bay in preparation for restoration efforts on the horizon.  The team will perform several surveys using a variety of equipment to help provide the fullest picture of what artifacts may lay underneath the surface.

Remnants from old piers, military munitions, or even shipwrecks such as the S.S. City of Chester which sank after a collision in the bay on August 24, 1888 are some of the items expected to be found.  More modern artifacts such as tires and even a golf cart are the only discoveries to date however.
