Connecticut Adds 2 Clean Marinas
February 2, 2011
The Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) recently recognized 2 recreational boating facilities in southeastern Connecticut as “Clean Marinas.”
At a ceremony at the Connecticut Marine Trades Association (CMTA) Hartford Boat Show, the Clean Marina certification was presented to Don’s Dock in Stonington and Port Niantic in the Niantic section of East Lyme.
DEP’s Clean Marina designation acknowledges the efforts of marinas and other boating facilities that go beyond regulatory compliance and participate in voluntary measures to keep Connecticut waters clean. With the addition of the 2 facilities mentioned above, there are now 29 Clean Marinas in Connecticut.
Do you keep your boat at one of these marinas or another one with the designation?
How does being a member of a clean marina affect you. Please comment below.
