Description of Incident

During saturation diving operations between bell runs it was noted that Divers Hot Water Unit #2 had a water leak. The leak was investigated and located, but was found to be in a place with very poor access. There was a small hole in a pipe, which on investigation was found to be a bigger hole under surface corrosion.

The Dive Supervisors and Dive Superintendent were immediately informed about the issue, and diving was suspended due to there being no backup for the remaining Hot Water #1 Unit.
