Clean Marina Program

The South Carolina Clean Marina Program provides a unique opportunity for marina owners and operators to improve their customer services, protect water quality and be recognized for their efforts. By meeting prescribed environmental performance criteria, marinas can qualify to fly the Clean Marina flag to attract recreational and transient boaters to their facility.

South Carolina’s Clean Marina program is part of an international effort along with 24 other states and territories to use best management practices to protect and improve water quality at marinas. The program is administered by the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control, Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management and the South Carolina Marine Association.

For information, please contact the SC Marine Association at 843-889-9067.

If you are planning to submit an application for Clean Marina or Clean Boatyard status, please access the revised Clean Marina Checklist. For comments or questions, please contact the SC Marine Association (Suzi Durant) at 843-889-9067.
