The South Carolina Marine Association is working to revive the state’s Clean Marina Program, with three newly designated companies recognized at the organization’s annual meeting last week.

"The program has stagnated for the last couple of years," SCMA president Bob Pilcher said in a statement. "SCMA got together with the Department of Health and Environmental Control and the Department of Natural Resources to revitalize it with a new guidebook and checklist. This first round was a learning curve for both the committee and the applicants."

The South Carolina Clean Marina program awarded certification to Lighthouse Marina in Chapin and Port Royal Landing Marina in Port Royal. The state's first Clean Boatyard Certification was awarded to The Charleston City Boatyard in Wando. This brings the total number of Clean Marina facilities in the state to 12.

Clean Marina designations must be recertified every five years. SCMA plans to next recertify existing Clean Marinas. The program will be open to new applicants in January.
