FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 17th, 2006 will mark the one year anniversary of Resolve’s successful efforts to sink the first U.S. Aircraft Carrier (ex-Oriskany CV-34) as an artificial reef. The ex-Oriskany was built after World War II and had decorated service in the Korean War and Vietnam War eras. This vessel was chosen by the US Navy’s Inactive Ships Program as the first of its kind to be disposed of as an artificial reef in accordance with the EPA’s Best Management Practices for reefing ships.
Resolve, along with a partner company, was chosen as the contractor to perform this important environmental remediation and sinking support. This project was truly ground breaking and the first of its kind as a large scale US Navy funded artificial reef project. For more details see our “Projects” Page.
