Maryland names new Clean Marinas

Twelve Maryland marinas were presented with Governor's Citation awards recently for being certified as Clean Marinas.

"Every Marylander has a role in helping to restore the health of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries," Gov. Martin O'Malley said in a statement. "I want to commend these business owners for making a significant contribution to this effort."

To receive certification, a marina must meet regulatory requirements as well as implement a number of recommendations from the Maryland Clean Marina Guidebook in areas such as sewage handling, waste containment and disposal, and marina management. The marinas must meet minimum scores - 75 to 80 percent - in each area of the Award Checklist and pass a site inspection.

The Clean Marinas receiving the Governor's Citation were:

* Annapolis City Dock

* Annapolis Maryland Capital Yacht Club

* Annapolis Yacht Club Sailing Center

* Campbell's Boatyard at Jack's Point (Oxford)

* Clark's Landing Marine Center (Chester)

* Gunpowder Neck Boat Club (Aberdeen Proving Ground MWR)

* Mill Creek Marina (Naval Station Annapolis)

* Nanticoke Harbor Marina (Nanticoke)

* National Harbor Marina (Oxon Hill)

* Tradewinds Marina (Baltimore)
