Could you please provide, or refer me to a source regarding the impacts old
automotive tires cause on our Underwater Environment. I am currently with a
Scuba Diving organization in the Illinois area. We conduct weekly
Beach/Underwater Cleanups. Recently many fisherman have challenged us for
removing old tires out of the lakes. We realize the fish most likely like
to hide in/near them, but we have also noticed most of these tires being
eaten and decomposing underwater.
Any information you can provide would be appreciated.
