Virginia Clean MarinaMarinas and the Environment

There are approximately 1000 marinas and 230,000 boaters in the tidal waters of Virginia that share in the scenic beauty, economic benefits and general use of Virginia's waterways. This extensive interaction between users and natural resources increases the potential for negative impacts to water quality from nonpoint sources of pollution. Marina operators can prevent and reduce these potential impacts through a series of best management practices (BMPs).  Virginia Clean Marina Program
