"Clean Marinas" Bring Water Quality Stewardship Home

via The Capital

Three cheers for our local Annapolis City Marina and the Third Street Marina! They have become two of the latest "clean marinas" certified by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. Four other marinas were also recognized this week:

  • Sunset Harbor Marina, Essex (Baltimore County)
  • Choptank Marina, Preston (Caroline County)
  • Point Lookout State Park Marina, Scotland (St. Mary's County)
  • Port of Salisbury Marina, Salisbury (Worcester County)
  • With this week's honorees, the total number of certified clean marinas in the state is now 119, which is about 19 percent of the roughly 600 marinas and boatyards across the state. Some of the best management practices implemented at Annapolis City Marina include stormwater management in the parking garage, a spill response kit at the fuel dock, and a marine sewage pump-out station.

    For more information on becoming a "Clean Marina" visit DNR's website at http://www.dnr.state.md.us/boating/cleanmarina/. Boaters who want to join in protecting our waterways can join CBF's Boaters for the Bay and DNR's Maryland Clean Boater Program.
