The Michigan Clean Marina Program announced that two more Michigan facilities were certified as Clean Marinas: Kean's Marina in Detroit and St. Clair Boat Harbor in St. Clair.

Three other marinas have recertified under the program: DeTour State Harbor in DeTour Village, Manistee Municipal Marina in Manistee and Walstrom Marine in Cheboygan.

With the addition of these two newly certified marinas, a total of 41 Michigan marinas obtained and are maintaining this certification.

“We are proud of the two new marinas joining the ranks of Certified Clean Marinas and the continuation of following best practices by the three recertified facilities,” Michigan Boating Industries Association president John Ropp said in a statement. “We are also encouraged that more boaters are becoming aware of the program and are searching out these facilities as places they want to patronize.”
