Clean marina programs along the West Coast
Each West Coast state has a voluntary Clean Marina Program that works to protect and improve local water quality by promoting the use of environmentally sensitive practices at marinas, providing clean facilities to protect waters from pollution, and reducing and managing hazardous waste. These programs help keep the West Coast a safe a clean place to live, work, and recreate.
The WCGA Sustainable Communities ACT supports Clean Marina best management practices. To learn more about the Clean Marina programs in your state, click the links below.
