Then may I suggest you and the Md. marina in question that uses Md. Clean Marina program as an excuse as written in their policy..go butt heads over the program's dos and donts if and when you decide to move your base of operations from your location on the 'Left' coast(San Francisco) to Md. Chesapeake Bay...

Md.'s Clean Marina program aside..a marina can do anything it wants as long as it's within the purvey of the law. I dive on my own boat and fully aware of its best practices..just not in marina(s) that has policy that says no diving...respecting the wishes of theses Md. marinas with these no dive polices...

If you looked back about 3years you should find, if not deleted, a pm from me showing the written policy of a certain Chesapeake marina explaining that their decision to not allow (commercial) diving services was based on Md.'s Clean Marina previsions...as we had discussed this previously in another similar thread...

Re: Diver needed - Edgewater Maryland

[QUOTE=MDBoatBabe;1105567]In accordance with the Maryland Clean Marina's Act, DNR has instituted a companion document "Underwater Hull Cleaning: Tips for Divers....Best Management Practices for Divers" (Google Search this title)

While the General Discharge Permit does not specifically apply to divers, the Maryland and federal laws do not allow the release of pollutants from any source into surface water. Professional divers need to use best management practices to prevent releasing paint and metals.

It would be a pity if a contracted diver is turned away that doesn't allow bottom cleaning at a marina that uses Md's Clean Marinas Act as their excuse. I know of one marina that this has occurred...

[quote=aa3jy;1069726]More and more marinas are going Green which their written policies may prevent commercial divers from cleaning bottoms in those marinas. If (no) policy has been established which allows commercial diving there is Md.s Clean Water act that establishes specific procedures for cleaning boat bottoms..
