5 Local Marinas Honored as 'Clean' in the Annapolis MD Area

Annapolis is known for its abundance of waterways and needless to say we have an abundance of marinas along those waterways too. So what a delight when the news came out that 5 local marina's were honored as 'clean' during the states inspection this time around.

Clean Water

So what does 'clean' mean? It means these marina's earned certification for taking on environmentally friendly practices. Practices such as installing rain gardens to treat polluted storm-water to educating boaters on preventing fuel spills. The yacht clubs, marinas, boat ramps and other facilities in the program earn points toward certification for different practices and must be re certified every 3 years. The state run program called the Maryland Clean Marina Initiative is voluntary and yet more and more marinas are joining. All in all Maryland has 139 certified facilities which amounts to 23% of the facilities in the state.

The marinas that were honored in the Annapolis area are:

  • Annapolis City Dock
  • Annapolis Maryland Capital Yacht Club
  • Annapolis Yacht Club
  • Mill Creek Marina at Naval Station Annapolis
  • Yacht Basin Co, in Annapolis

These marinas show a real commitment to our bay and its tributaries. The bay is so important to everyone along its shores and the life within its waters and by each one of us contributing in even a small way to its health and vitality is a testament to our growing desire to protect this great natural resource.

Our hats are off to each marina that made the effort to go 'clean'. We appreciate your hard work and efforts to protect the future of our bay.
