New Jersey partners with marina operators

BRICK TOWNSHIP, N.J. – Advancing Acting Governor Codey’s Coast 2005 initiative, Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Commissioner Bradley M. Campbell today kicked off the New Jersey Clean Marina program to reduce nonpoint source pollution in coastal waterways, the Marine Trades Association of New Jersey reported in a recent statement.

“By partnering with marina operators, local governments, and recreational boaters we are working together to protect the water on which New Jersey’s maritime community depends,” said Acting Governor Richard J. Codey.

The Clean Marina program offers marinas free assistance and guidance to reduce and eliminate pollution resulting from everyday operations and human practices. In addition to protecting clean water and the environment, the program offers marinas benefits including state certification as a Clean Marina facility and authorized use of the official Clean Marina logo for marketing and advertising materials.

The Clean Marina program is sponsored by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) with a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Marinas currently participating in the New Jersey Clean Marina Program: All Seasons Marina, Anchorage Poynte Marina, Baywood Marina, Blue Water Marina, Dillons’ Creek Marina, Hidden Mill Marine Center, Leamings Marine, Inc., Lincoln Harbor Yacht Club, Riverbank Marina, Silver Cloud Harbor Marina, Spencer’s Bayside Marina, and Waterfront Marine.
