Florida’s Clean Marina Program
The Clean Marina Program is a voluntary program designed to help keep Florida's coast and waterway resources clean, which consists of awards and recognition, education awareness, and Clean Marina/Boatyard designation. The program is funded through grants from agencies, such as the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, and the Florida Inland Navigation District, and is administered by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The Clean Marina Program provides marina operators/owners with the means to self-assess their facilities through the use of a checklist provided by the Department of Environmental Protection. The checklist includes marina activities with associated Marina Environmental Measures (MEMs), efforts to communicate effectively the standards and procedures to all employees and agents, and procedures for prompt and appropriate correction of any violations that may occur if corrective actions need to take place.
