Marinas and other boating facilities expand the opportunities to enjoy lakes, rivers, and tidal waters. However, not all waters are equally suited to intense boating activity. Locating a new marina in sensitive areas may result in damage to aquatic ecosystems, accelerated shore erosion, excessive noise, and other impacts.
We can help if you are concerned about existing boating impacts or those resulting from proposed facilities including marinas, dredging, piers, jetties, etc. On our download publications page you will find The Effects of Marinas & Boating Activity Upon Tidal Waterways, which is a scientific literature review we prepared. If you wish, we can perform an initial, no-cost review of boating facility plans for opportunities to gain the benefits these facilities provide with fewer adverse effects. Just give us a call at 410-654-3021. Our advice is always available free of charge to citizens by phone.
