Repairs required in crawlspace

I own a home in the far north, and have a small heated crawlspace under the house. (The house itself is on pilings so the whole thing, crawlspace included is up off the ground a few feet). A section of this crawlspace floor has obviously seen some water in the past and needs to be replaced. I am not having a lot of luck finding out good information (and more importantly things to watch out for) when trying to do a repair to an enclosed and small crawlspace. I am just looking for the benefit of any experience others may have before I dive into this.

I am expecting it to look something like this top down:

1. Main level floor
2. Floor joists
3. Crawlspace
4. plywood floor in crawlspace (requiring partial replacement, last layer I am sure of)
5. Insulation / frame to support insulation
6. Additional layer of plywood
7. floor joists visible on underside of structure.

Thank you in advance.

Need to post some pictures.
I've never seen or heard of a wooden floor in a crawl space.
