Protecting Our Lakes and Rivers

Indiana Clean Marinas

What is the Indiana Clean Marina Program?

The Indiana Clean Marina Program was developed in an effort to protect our state’s inland and coastal waterways by reducing the potential environmental impacts associated with marinas and recreational boating. The Indiana Clean Marina Program provides information, technical assistance, and guidance to marinas and recreational boaters. By participating in this voluntary program, marinas, boatyards, yacht clubs, and recreational boaters will be recognized for their environmental stewardship.

The Indiana Clean Marina Program is a collaborative effort by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, marinas, boatyards, yacht clubs, and recreational boaters. Development of the Indiana Clean Marina Program was made possible with financial assistance awarded to the Lake Michigan Coastal Program by the Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) under a Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972, Section 310 grant and piloted in the Lake Michigan Coastal Program area in May of 2008.

Due to the success of the Clean Marina Program, it was approved for statewide expansion in May of 2014. As the program has developed and needs have changed, funding for the Clean Marina Program has primarily been made available through the U.S. EPA Lake Michigan Lakewide Action and Management Plan (LAMP) capacity funding that is provided annually to IDEM through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI).

Boaters are encouraged to patronize certified clean marinas and to adopt clean boating habits.
