Mission Statement

The South Carolina Clean Marina Program provides a unique opportunity for marina owners and operators to improve their customer services, protect water quality and be recognized for their efforts. By meeting prescribed environmental performance criteria, marinas can qualify to fly the Clean Marina flag to attract recreational and transient boaters to their facility.

South Carolinas Clean Marina program is part of an international effort along with 24 other states and territories to use best management practices to protect and improve water quality at marinas. The program is administered by the SC Department of Natural Resources and the South Carolina Marine Association.

Marinas and boatyards that participate in the Clean Marina program are recognized for their environmental stewardship by engaging in environmentally sound operating and maintenance procedures, using Best Management Practices.  Under the program, these facilities also encourage their customers and other boaters to use practices to protect our waterways.
