    • The Group Leader is responsible for submitting the donation form before or immediately following the dive.
Laurel Divers maintains the quarry. Our biggest expenses are the porta-johns and road maintenance. We ask a donation of $5 per person per day to help pay for this maintenance. 100% of the quarry donations are used exclusively at the quarry.
