Divers check pilings at Port San Luis Pier

The Central Coast shoreline is marked by a lot of piers, and it's important to make sure they're safe to use. On Saturday, volunteers and Deputies with the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Department were diving at Port San Luis to make sure the pier's pilings are in good shape. Along the way, they also cleaned up trash, and the dive even serves as a training exercise. "Sometimes you're diving in less than ideal conditions, and if you have a familiarity with your dive area, it's helpful for safety reasons," said Stewart Bishop, a Corrections Deputy. The divers say they didn't notice much trash in the ocean in that area, but some of the pilings were partially rotted. Eventually, they will need to be replaced. On November 16th, divers will be in Morro Bay checking the Harbor Patrol Pier.
