GRAVEYARD Abandoned vessels still a hazard By JUDIPERLMAN Staff Writer Anne Arundel County may have more boats these but fewer abandoned vessels are clogging area waterways. used to have boat grave- yards. People just left their boats like a said William chief of the county Road Operations Bureau. At one workers would pull 60 to 80 derelict boats from coun- ty waters each year. Now it moves eight to 12 a Baldwin said. used to be a major problem but the problem is he said. take out 20 to 30 boats at a time. Lately it's been just one or The process for removing an abandoned boat can take from one to three Baldwin said. But for some communities that want their creeks free of getting someone to remove junk and derelict boats has not been so easy. Since last year residents at the tip of Mayo Peninsula have tried to rid Cadle Creek of up to seven derelict boats. Many of the ves- sels are still there. boats were piled full of junk screen barrels much of it floated Mayo boater Alfred Berndt said. Two of the junk-laden boats have DO lights and easily could be struck by another residents say. But after repeated calls to the county and to Department of Nat- by M.

Woody Willing of the Nat- ural Resources Police admits that removing abandoned boats may take some especially if po- lice are trying to locate an owner process is good as we can get It's a little time-consuming he said. But one Police said they still are looking for the owner to cite him. the county says it is on the case. The problem of derelict boats will never totally dissolve. So what is the best way for residents to get junked crafts out of their Natural Resources Police say they should be informed about the problem first. They will inspect an abandoned attempt to locate the owner and ask him to remove the boat within 30 days. If he doesn't move they will charge him with abandonment. If that fails or an owner can't be police will contact DNR's Waterway Improvements Division. Baldwin said the Road Opera- tions Bureau should be contacted first. Workers will inspect the vessels and decide whether to remove them or have DNR police locate an owner. County workers can remove boats if they are near the shore. To retrieve vessels from the wa- the county must bid for marine engineers to do the work. Waterway Improvements then reimburses the county. One catch is that the abandoned boat must be located within navi- gable waters to be considered a hazard. Being stuck in the middle of a channel is an obvious hazard but sitting in a cove area such as Cadle Creek may not be consid- ered dangerous. Baldwin is quite happy that most of the county's waterways have cleaned up. Sediment controls lag But survey finds most violators are caught By EFFIE COTTMAN Staf Writer A survey of county construction sites shows that while most builders ignore environmental inspec- tors are keeping close tabs on the violators. The annual June survey by the watchdog group Save Our Streams showed that more than half of the sites they visited lacked adequate erosion control measures. But most sites in violation already had been ordered to correct the problem. The SOS survey is designed to measure compliance with sediment and erosion laws and gauge how the county enforces those laws. Erosion laws are designed to pre- vent soil from washing from building sites into nearby streams. The laws call for the installation of straw sediment ponds or other types of traps to stop the flow of soil. If it reaches a the soil clouds the water and covers the bottom with silt. It blocks sunlight and kills the insects that live on the stream bed. It also carries pollu- tants that may be lethal to fish and shellfish. The survey results show that the county is doing its job to curb soil but builders still aren't com- mitted to protecting the environ- need stiffer penalties. We need an enforcement procedure that is quick and exact. We need support from the Thomas Director of Inspections according to SOS member Lina Vlavianos of Mfllersville. does not reflect well on because 19 of 37 sites had violations of some sort or anoth- Mrs. Vlavianos said.
