Tome's Landing Marina in Port Deposit is the newest Maryland Clean Marina, certified by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.

The marina joins 145 facilities that have adopted a significant portion of recommendations from the Maryland Clean Marina Guidebook and passed a site inspection. The department oversees the Clean Marina Initiative, a voluntary program that promotes and celebrates the efforts of marinas, boatyards and yacht clubs to reduce pollution.

Owners Jack Conrad and David Read started the business in June 2000. It consists of two large dry storage buildings that hold about 200 boats. The marina also offers fuel at a carefully monitored dock, marine sewage pumpouts, and engine and boat repair. Pollution prevention controls are implemented in all areas of the operation.

“We’ve been what I’d call ‘clean’ for years. It’s nice to get an award from DNR to prove it,” Conrad said in a statement.
