The Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection recently recognized two recreational boating facilities in southeastern Connecticut as Clean Marinas.

At a ceremony at the Connecticut Marine Trades Association's Hartford Boat Show, the Clean Marina certification was presented to Don's Dock in Stonington and Port Niantic in the Niantic section of East Lyme.

The certifications bring the number of Clean Marinas in the state to 29.

"The DEP recognizes these exemplary small businesses located along our shoreline for their voluntary efforts to reduce the environmental impacts of their marina operations," DEP commissioner Amey Marrella said in a statement.

"We encourage all Connecticut marinas, yacht clubs and boatyards to follow the examples of those that have already been certified and participate in this program to keep Connecticut's waterways clean and healthy and to maintain the quality of our waters for a variety of important recreational activities."
