The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has selected the state’s cleanest, greenest, most eco-friendly marinas and boatyards of 2012, naming four establishments based on their size and services. The winners are Paradise Marina (small marina), Deale; Rockhold Creek Marina (small boatyard), Deale; Baltimore Marine Center Lighthouse Point (large marina), Baltimore; and Tidewater Yacht Service Center (large boatyard), Baltimore. Mariners, marina owners and watershed associations sent in nominations from which the DNR’s Clean Marina Program chose the winners based on the cleanliness of the facilities, the environmental services offered, and the staff’s work in communicating and enforcing clean marina rules and practices.
