Ohio Clean Marinas joins Green Marine Supporters

May 25, 2021

The Ohio Clean Marinas Program is a proactive partnership designed to encourage marinas and boaters to use simple but innovative solutions to keep Ohio’s coastal and inland waterway resources clean. The program helps marina and boating operators to protect the clean water and fresh air that provide their livelihood. The program strengthens environmental stewardship by making marinas and boaters more aware of environmental laws, rules and jurisdictions, and by encouraging as many marinas as possible to follow best management practices to be designated as a Clean Marina. The benefits for a certified Clean Marina include public recognition for an enhanced image, the membership interest of conscientious boaters, possible financial incentives and compliance assistance and, most importantly, improved water quality and wildlife habitat.
