About Clean Marinas

The Virginia Clean Marina Program (VCMP) promotes the voluntary adoption of measures that prevent or reduce pollution from traditional and non-traditional marinas, boatyards and recreational boats. Marina operators that adopt these measures are designated as "Virginia Clean Marinas."

The intent of VCMP is to provide technical assistance and otherwise educate marina operators and boaters on best management practices to incorporate in their operations to maintain water quality and protect living resources.

This site is designed to help marina/boatyard operators find out how to become a "Clean Marina," but also includes other information on regulatory programs, clean boating, current events and activities in the industry and more. Anyone interested in the link between clean marinas and clean waters in Virginia should explore this site.
