Frisco Bay Marina receives Clean Marina Certification

Clean Marina Certification


The Frisco Bay Marina has received Colorado’s Clean Marina certification under the new program aimed at protecting water quality and encouraging environmentally-friendly boating and marina practices. The certification was awarded by the recently-launched Colorado Marina Association (CMA), a non-profit organization dedicated to delivering the Clean Marinas Colorado Program and promoting clean boating on Colorado’s waterways. The certification was presented to the Frisco Bay Marina at the Timberline Regatta on June 25, 2011.

To receive certification, the Frisco Bay Marina met the program’s rigorous criteria and must adhere to a set of on-going standards and requirements. These standards reflect best management practices for minimizing the environmental impact of boating and marina operations.

“This is an important accomplishment for the Frisco Bay Marina as it demonstrates our commitment to environmental stewardship,” said Phil Hofer, Frisco Bay marina Manager. “We are proud to be one of the first in the state to receive this certification.”

The Clean Marinas Colorado Program is a voluntary program that targets marinas and individual boaters—providing education and outreach activities that help maintain or restore water quality in Colorado’s major waterways. The program was developed in collaboration with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment – Nonpoint Source Program, U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Mile High Flotilla and the Colorado Lake & Reservoir Management Association (CLRMA).
