Can anyone recommend a reliable diver near South River?
This Kyle guy gets around.
I used Patrick for a couple of years. He often didn't show up due to health issues.
FYI- The Clean Marina program offers strictly voluntary guidelines. Not state law or any other type of enforceable regulation.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..
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..
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...
