“The Florida Clean Marina Program is instrumental to the future of Florida. Those of us with a passion for clean water and protecting our marine habitat greatly appreciate the dedicated efforts of DEP and their Clean Marina program.”
Loggerhead Club and Marina President
The Florida Clean Marina Program is a voluntary designation program with a
proactive approach to environmental stewardship. Participants receive assistance in implementing Best
Management Practices through on-site and distance technical assistance, mentoring by other
Marinas and continuing education. To become designated as a
Clean Marina, facilities must implement a set of
environmental Best Management Practices (BMP) designed to protect Florida’s waterways.
These BMP's address critical environmental issues such as
sensitive habitat, waste management, storm water control, spill
prevention and emergency preparedness. Designated facilities and
those facilities seeking designation receive ongoing technical
support from the Florida
Clean Marina Program and the Clean Boating Partnership.
