Designated Clean Marina and Pumpout Facility
The Florida Clean Marina Program is a voluntary designation program with a proactive approach to environmental stewardship. Participants receive assistance in implementing Best Management Practices through on-site and distance technical assistance, mentoring by other Clean Marinas and continuing education. To become designated as a Clean Marina, facilities must implement a set of environmental measures designed to protect Floridas waterways. These measures address critical environmental issues such as sensitive habitat, waste management, stormwater control, spill prevention and emergency preparedness. Designated facilities and those facilities seeking designation receive ongoing technical support from the Florida Clean Marina Program and the Clean Boating Partnership.

The Clean Vessel Act (CVA) is a federally funded grant program administered by the Florida Clean Marina Program for the construction of pumpout facilities and pumpout vessels at marina and boatyard sites. The CVA program supports educational and public awareness programs on the importance and practice of keeping raw sewage out of Floridas waterways.
