Wisconsin names first Clean Marinas

The new Wisconsin Clean Marina program has certified its first four marinas: Port Washington Marina, SkipperBud's Harbor Club Marina and SkipperBud's Quarterdeck Marina in Sturgeon Bay, and Nestegg Marine in Marinette.

The Wisconsin Marina Association received a $50,825 grant in July to launch and administer the certification program with training and technical assistance from the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute and the school's Extension Solid & Hazardous Waste Education Center.

The grant was awarded by the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program of the Wisconsin Department of Administration.

"Wisconsin is blessed with more than 15,000 inland lakes," said Victoria Harris, a water quality specialist with UW Sea Grant, in a statement. "The Wisconsin Clean Marina program is a voluntary, cooperative effort that helps protect those waters for everyone to enjoy for years to come."
