Marina Operators Promote Clean-Water Practices

Posted: Updated:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A group of marinas in the Great Lakes region has been formed to share ideas about protecting water quality to benefit swimming, fishing and boating.

The Great Lakes Clean Marina Network has representatives from the marina industry, regulatory agencies and universities.

It was formed by the Green Marina Education and Outreach Project with backing from the Obama administration's Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. The project has certified 69 "clean marinas" and involved more than 2,100 people in workshops.

Additionally, it has published a guide with best management practices for marina operators.
