Six Michigan facilities were certified as Michigan Clean Marinas, bringing the number of certified marinas in the state to 30.

The newly certified marinas are Algonac Harbour Club in Algonac; Lac La Belle State Harbor in Lac La Belle; Copper Harbor State Dock in Copper Harbor; Eagle Harbor State Dock in Eagle Harbor; Cedar River State Harbor in Cedar River; and Torresen Marine in Muskegon.

"It gives me a great sense of pride and satisfaction that we are a part of the overall effort to clean Michigan's water and maintain it," Algonac Harbour Club's William Coughlin said in a statement.

The Michigan Clean Marina Program is a joint program between the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Michigan Sea Grant and Michigan Boating Industries Association.
