  • Nonpoint source pollution is currently the major source of water pollution in Oregon as well as the United States as a whole. The Environmental Protection Agency designated marinas as one of the sources of nonpoint pollution to coastal waters. In an effort to reduce nonpoint pollution from marinas and to fulfill the requirement of the Coastal Zone Act Reauthorization Amendments of 1990 Section 6217, Clean Marina programs have been developed in several states. In January 2005, the Oregon State Marine Board began developing an Oregon Clean Marina program. The Clean Marina program is a voluntary ecolabel program which encourages marina operators and recreational boaters to protect water quality by engaging in environmentally sound operating and maintenance procedures. The Clean Marina program recognizes marinas that go above and beyond the environmental regulations and laws. Incentives for marina participation in the program include authority to use the Clean Marina logo, free technical assistance, free advertising, and possible monetary benefits. This report outlines the process of developing the Oregon Clean Marina program — including the review of other state programs, holding of stakeholder meetings, creation of program guidebooks, and development of recommendations for the program structure. Program implementation is slated to begin in July 2005.
