The Louisiana Clean Marina Program promotes and celebrates voluntary adoption of measures to assist marinas and recreational boaters in protecting Louisiana’s waters. Designated “clean marinas” are recognized as environmentally responsible businesses and enjoy the positive goodwill and economic feedback of being able to promote their business as: A LOUISIANA CLEAN MARINA.
Cleaner Water for Louisiana
Increased Economic Benefits for Louisiana and Louisiana Marinas
Marina operators adopt Best Management Practices (BMPs) in the operation and maintenance of their marinas. These BMPS are provided to operators in a guidebook and in other educational materials. In addition, technical help and advice is provided by members of the various Louisiana Clean Marina member committees.
Clean Marina Certification is achieved after a marina has met a minimum score on the checklist criteria based on BMP practices or options. Operators will conduct self-assessments which will be verified by representatives of the Certification Committee. Certification is maintained through a yearly re-evaluation of marina best management practices.
Louisiana’s Clean Marinas will receive:
- a certificate acknowledging their environmentally responsible actions
- authorization to use the Louisiana Clean Marina logo on their letterhead and in their advertising
- a flag to fly on their property, and
- promotion by the Clean Marina Initiative in publications, on the World Wide Web and at public events.
