The Missouri Clean Marina program is a voluntary, incentive-based program that encourages marina operators and recreational boaters to protect water quality by engaging in environmentally sound operating and maintenance procedures.
This goal of this program is to improve and protect the water quality of Missouri Lakes. The marina and boating industry depends on clean waters for their continued success. Becoming a Missouri Clean Marina allows the marina to publicly demonstrate they are taking actions in being good stewards of water quality.
