Clean Boating Guide

There's nothing like a day out on the water. But imagine the water had a film on it and an unpleasant odor, garbage bobbed about, and dead fish and other aquatic creatures floated amongst the trash. Each of us is responsible for working to prevent that disaster from coming true. Help keep our rivers, streams, and oceans clean, beautiful, and alive by following these best practices:

Fuel and Oil

Sewage and Garbage

Painting and Sanding

Hull Maintenance

Report oil, fuel, or hazardous waste spills or the disposal of plastics into marine waters to the U.S. Coast Guard Marine Environmental Response Center at 800-424-8802 or VHF/FM radio channel 16.
