The Michigan Clean Marina Program recently announced that Eldean Shipyard in Holland has been recertified as a Michigan Clean Marina.
It has been recertified for another five-year term through 2019. Forty-two Michigan marinas have obtained and are maintaining this prestigious certification.
The clean marina program was initiated to preserve and protect the Great Lakes and its connecting waterways through voluntary efforts. The certification process begins with a pledge to participate in the program, followed by an online course with an overview of the designation process and a review of best management practices.
The Michigan Clean Marina Program is a joint program between the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Michigan Sea Grant and Michigan Boating Industries Association.
