Dive Source Scuba along with Members of the Durham Divers Scuba Club, their friends, families, and members of the local community  participated in a much needed cleanup of the Lake Ontario Shoreline at Park Rd. in Oshawa on Saturday, September 17th. 2005

This site was littered with dozens of rusting steel barrels, shopping carts and trash of all kinds both in the water and on the shoreline.

Clean up site

This location was featured in the local news as a known trouble spot that the city was not able to clean-up,  so local diver and Durham Divers Club founder and member Rob Walker decided that it was the perfect place to receive some TLC and  also made it an official Project AWARE event.

Each year there are hundreds of underwater/shore cleanups throughout North America as part of PADI Project AWARE and the Ocean Conservancy’s International Cleanup Day. This event came as a welcome answer to a known problem area and was second beach clean-up that Rob has organized with the Durham Divers and Dive Source.


Local businesses like DIVE SOURCE SCUBA , The City of Oshawa and Rob Walker past president of the Durham Diver's scuba club and owner of Custom Plastic Impressions have also answered the call by providing resources and support.

 

 

 

THIS SHORE CLEANUP WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!

- Thanks to Everyone who came out and worked so hard for what was a Great Day for the environment.
