Marina Outreach & Assistance

Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description The CT DEP Office of Long Island Sound Programs and Boating Division are jointly developing a Clean Marina Program that is a voluntary, incentive-based, education and outreach campaign to encourage environmental compliance and the use of best management practices at the state's 350 coastal and inland boating facilities. The program will also include an outreach campaign to educate the state's boaters about environmentally-friendly boating practices.

CT DEP is working with Connecticut's recreational boating industry to develop a "Clean Marina Guidebook," a cross-media, user-friendly manual for marina operators that will outline the state and federal legal requirements for common marina activities, and best management practices to minimize impacts of non-point sources of pollution from marinas and boatyards. Once the manual was completed in early 2002, CT DEP planned to host workshops on environmental compliance and pollution prevention as well as provide small grants to facilities to conduct demonstration projects for best management practices at boating facilities.

CT DEP is also working with the recreational boating industry to develop environmental standards for marinas to be certified as "clean marinas." Since no marina can become a "clean marina" without full compliance with environmental permits and without taking several steps to go beyond compliance, CT DEP will provide compliance assistance to marinas as they work toward clean marina certification. CT DEP planned on beginning to certify marinas in the fall and winter of 2002.
