Two marinas on Washington's Lake Union - Affinity Marina and Salmon Bay Marine Center - are the newest additions to the Clean Marina Washington program.

This brings to 61 the number of marinas in the state’s program.

“It was a pleasure to work with both marinas,” said Barbara Owens, of Puget Soundkeeper Alliance, who performed both certifications on behalf of Clean Marina Washington. “Their commitment to best management practices to protect the environment and their marinas was already evident. Getting them aligned with the detailed program standards mostly involved changes to their record keeping and posting signs; they already had in place many of the program requirements.”

Clean Marina Washington was created in 2005. It is an incentive-based certification program in which marinas assess their operations and make improvements to better protect the environment.
