California boatyard wins environmental honor

KKMI Sausalito was named Northern California Small Industry Facility of the Year for the second time in 10 years by the California Water Environment Association.

The award is given to industrial facilities with significant accomplishments in environmental protection and wastewater control.

With operations in Port Richmond and Sausalito, KKMI offers yacht maintenance services and says it has been a leader in the movement to protect San Francisco Bay from toxic industrial waste, including the elimination of copper from anti-fouling paints and discharges.

"We are proud to be recognized by the industry for our environmental practices," said Ken Keefe, one of the founding partners of KKMI. "We apply the same craftsmanship and attention to detail to our customer's boats as to how we operate our facilities. It is important to our customers and it is also critical for the health of the bay that our industry maintains the highest level of environmental compliance."
