After multimillion-dollar renovations, Palm Harbor Marina was certified as a Clean Marina by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.

To earn the designation, the marina took steps to address critical environmental matters, including sensitive habitat, waste management, storm-water runoff, spill prevention, and hurricane and emergency preparedness.

"We went above and beyond the requirements and did things right from the start. To be recognized by the state of Florida and the Department of Environmental Protection as a Clean Marina is an important distinction," marina manager John Smundin said in a statement.

A private Clean Marina designation ceremony will be held March 24 at the marina.

The marina, just south of the Flagler Bridge in the heart of the Palm Beaches, offers 200 slips. The marina also features a state-of-the-art concrete floating dock system, high-speed fuel pumps, in-slip pumpout services, security and single- and three-phase power.
