Michigan adds three facilities to Clean Marina program

Publish date:

The Michigan Clean Marina Program has named Fayette State Harbor in Fairbanks Township, East Tawas State Dock in East Tawas and Pier 1000 Marina in Benton Harbor as Certified Clean Marinas.

They have been certified through 2020.

The program also recertified five marinas — Milliken State Harbor in Detroit; Hammond Bay State Harbor in Millersburg; Straits State Harbor in Mackinaw City; Lexington State Dock in Lexington; and Cedar River State Harbor in Cedar River. The recertification extends through 2022.

“We welcome Fayette State Harbor, East Tawas State Dock and Pier 1000 Marina to the Clean Marina Program, and we commend Milliken State Harbor, Hammond Bay State Harbor, Straits State Harbor, Lexington State Dock and Cedar River State Harbor for being recertified as Michigan Clean Marinas and for their continuation of following best practices,” Nicki Polan, executive director of the Michigan Boating Industries Association, said in a statement. “More boaters are becoming aware of the program and are searching out these facilities as places they want to patronize.”

Michigan has 54 Clean Marinas. The Clean Marina designation is applicable for three years. After that, a facility must be recertified.

The MBIA encourages all marinas to seek the certification.

“It is not difficult, and there are both financial and environmental gains that come with this effort,” Polan said.
