Rhode Island Clean Marina Program

In 2020, a significant milestone was achieved in the Rhode Island marine industry as the RI Coastal Resource Management Council (CRMC), in collaboration with key stakeholders including the RI Marine Trade Association (RIMTA), RI Department of Environmental Management (DEM), Rhode Island Sea Grant and the University of Rhode Island Coastal Resources Center, undertook a comprehensive overhaul of the Rhode Island Clean Marina Program. This initiative aimed to modernize and streamline the program, making it more accessible and beneficial for industry stakeholders. As part of the revamp, RIMTA was appointed as the primary point of contact for the industry, facilitating smoother communication and engagement. Additionally, CRMC assumed the role of the certification agent, ensuring rigorous yet simplified certification procedures. Notably, the partners worked diligently to refine the certification process, simplifying documentation requirements to a concise checklist, thereby reducing administrative burdens and enhancing efficiency for marinas seeking certification. This collaborative effort underscores the commitment of Rhode Island’s marine community to environmental stewardship, sustainability and industry advancement.
