Chapter Abstract: This is clip 2 of 7 for this video. Potentially the most hazardous materials to the environment for marinas are petroleum based products such as fuel, lubricants, solvents, thinners and pesticides. Oil or fuel spills can result in $5,000 fines. The use of detergent to hide a spill can result in a $25,000 fine. All spills must be reported to the Coast Guard and the Maryland Department of the Environment. 1 quart of oil will block light and kill all micro life on 2 acres of water.
