Underwater Cleanups Too!

Clean Virginia Waterways has a partner, Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), which helps organize underwater cleanups. Underwater Cleanups throughout the world are organized by Project AWARE (a project of PADI). Are you a scuba diver? If you want to join thousands of scuba divers and water enthusiasts in the annual International Coastal Cleanup Day, contact Project AWARE. Project AWARE, in cooperation with the Ocean Conservancy, coordinates the underwater portion of the ICC, named the world's largest volunteer effort on behalf of the aquatic environment.

Clean Virginia Waterways does not coordinate underwater ICC events, and we encourage you to work with directly with Project AWARE if you are a diver. For centuries divers have been involved in underwater cleanups. With a unique view beneath the surface, divers see first-hand the effects of harmful debris.
