Five Wisconsin marinas were recently certified as Clean Marinas by the state.
They are The Abbey Marina (Fontana); Gaslight Pointe Marina (Racine); Lakeshore Towers (Racine); Manitowoc Marina; and SkipperBud's Reefpoint Marina (Racine).
The Wisconsin Clean Marina Program certification process was launched in July. There are now nine certified Clean Marinas in the state.
"The Clean Marina Program provides technical assistance and training for marina managers and recognizes marinas that are good stewards of Wisconsin's environment," said Victoria Harris, a water quality specialist with the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant, in a statement.
