Deltaville Marina is a Virginia Clean Marina for the 15th Year

June 25, 2019

Deltaville Marina is proud to announce that we are a member of the VIMS Virginia Clean Marina Program for the 15th year. “Our certification has given us the credentials to reference our efforts to operate an environmentally friendly waterfront commercial business”, says Keith Ruse, president and owner.

 

The Virginia Clean Marina Program (VCM) is part of the Virginia Coastal Nonpoint Pollution Control Program by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS). As a voluntary program, marinas must first pledge to initiate management practices that will protect Virginia’s waterways and shorelines, particularly in the vicinity of the marina. These practices include gaining knowledge of past and present legislation that protects waterways and shorelines, protecting wildlife habitats especially of rare and endangered species, minimizing wetland disturbance, avoiding shellfish and aquatic vegetation, minimizing runoff and corrosion, water quality control, and more. Another practice is controlling waste and sewage, of which Deltaville Marina offers free pump-out to all vessels.

 

Marinas are given a self-assessment form to complete. After, the Marina Technical and Environmental Advisory Committee (MTEAC) conducts an on-site follow up to confirm the assessment and make recommendations for improvement. In order to maintain their VCM status, these reports must be completed annually.

 

For the past 15 years, Deltaville Marina has voluntarily taken part in the program and offered boaters new ways to lower pollution and improve our waterways. “We are an environmentally conscious marina. The Virginia Clean Marina Program has provided a strong foundation as we evolve and better our efforts to care for the waterways and shorelines in our vicinity, as well as provide more opportunities for our customers to be environmentally aware as well”, says Ruse.
