Important Information for Facilities Conducting Vessel Bottom Pressure Washing: Consent Order - Background Information and Process for Compliance

Connecticut's Clean Marina Program is a voluntary program that encourages inland and coastal marina operators to minimize pollution.  The program also recognizes Connecticut's marinas, boatyards, and yacht clubs that go above and beyond regulatory compliance as "Certified Clean Marinas."

All certified marinas will receive a weatherproof Clean Marina Flag to fly at their facility and authorization to use the Clean Marina Program logo on company publications.  The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection will recognize certified Clean Marinas with press releases, on this web page, and at public events.

As a companion to the Clean Marina Program, the Clean Boater Program encourages the state's boaters to learn about and use clean boating techniques when operating and maintaining their boats.
