Wisconsin recently certified six new marinas as Clean Marinas.

They are Pikes Bay Marina (Bayfield); Bayfield City Docks; Washburn Marina; South Bay Marina (Green Bay); McKinley Marina (Milwaukee); and St. Croix Marina (Hudson).

There are 17 Clean Marinas in the state, which began the certification program last July.

“Wisconsin is blessed with more than 15,000 inland lakes and lakes Michigan and Superior, which are popular destinations for boating and fishing. There are over 250 marinas in the state — 125 of which are located on our two Great Lakes,” Jon Kukuk, owner of Nestegg Marine and chairman of the Wisconsin Marina Association, said in a statement. “Participating marinas implement practices that help cut operating costs through reducing waste disposal, conserving water and attracting new customers who appreciate patronizing an environmentally friendly operation.”
