Delaware City Marina was certified as the first Clean Marina on the Delaware River in New Castle County, state officials announced.

Located on Delaware City Branch Canal, adjacent to the Delaware River and the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal, Delaware City Marina is the 12th marina in the state to receive the designation.

The Delaware Clean Marina Program provides marina owners and operators with comprehensive information on pollution prevention practices, offers training workshops, and provides technical assistance to help marinas meet certification requirements.

The program has distributed more than 1,000 oil and fuel spill kits, 27,000 “Clean Boating” tip cards, and more than 3,000 pumpout key chains.

Since its inception in 2003, more than $254,000 in cost-share funds for the purchase of pumpout systems, oil spill kits and education signage has been awarded.
