Maryland seeks Clean Marina of the Year nominations

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is seeking nominations for its second annual Clean Marina of the Year contest.

“Our goal is to hear from boaters, marine contractors, staff and citizens on the Maryland Clean Marinas that are excelling in their efforts to run a clean facility,” program coordinator Donna Morrow said in a statement. “This contest celebrates the excellent work of these businesses in protecting our natural resources and complying with often complex regulations.”

Winners will be chosen by the Clean Marina program based on demonstrated excellence in overall cleanliness of the facility (indoors and outdoors); environmental services offered; and communicating and enforcing clean marina practices and goals to customers and contractors through rules, signs and services.

Anyone except program staff and contest sponsors can nominate a Clean Marina for the award. Nominations are based on services performed at the marinas during 2012, will be accepted until Jan. 4 and will be grouped into categories based on marina size and the services provided.

Herrington Harbour in Deale won the inaugural award last year. Maryland launched the first Clean Marina program in the United States in 1998. The state has since certified 148 facilities as Clean Marinas or Clean Marina Partners.
