Checking in on our friends at Washington State’s Clean Marina Program, it’s great to see that they have recently certified their 65th marina. They were a model for us (as was King County’s BuiltGreen Program) as we were putting together our Clean Boatyard Program. We’re talking voluntary approaches for marinas to separate themselves from the rest of the field. That’s like us, but different. We are to boatyards what they are to marinas.
As for that 65th Clean Marina, it’s Anacortes Marina, run by Bill Dovier. Congratulations, Anacortes Marina! Their facility will be listed on the Clean Marina Washington website at www.cleanmarinawashington.org.
Clean Marinas do things like: minimize hazardous waste generation (and then treat that generated waste properly), encourage tenants to use proper sewage pump-out services, disallow in-water bottom paint scrubbing and have emergency fuel spill material on-hand and at the ready.
Props to all 65 Clean Marinas, and especially to Anacortes Marina – way to go!
