–New marina opens for business with environmental stewardship a top priority—

TAMPA – The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), together with the Clean Boating Partnership,  recognized Westshore Yacht Club as Hillsborough County’s 2nd Clean Marina. “Running a Clean Marina is key to protecting Florida’s waterways,” said Deborah Getzoff, Director of the DEP’S Southwest District. “We are proud to welcome Westshore Yacht Club to the growing number of marinas in Tampa Bay who are recognizing the value in protecting our natural resources and have dedicated themselves to educating Florida boaters.”  Westshore Yacht Club built its facility using the Clean Marina Action Plan as its guide.
The 149 slip marina also implemented a self-inspection process to continuously evaluate aspects of the marina including storm water, waste management and emergency preparedness, as well as fire safety. Some of the steps in the program include using environmentally-safe cleaning supplies, pump out stations and providing marina staff and boaters with information on how to minimize environmental impacts. “The Clean Boating Partnership congratulates Westshore Yacht Club for their commitment to Florida’s environment,” said the Partnership’s Chair, John Naybor. “Their dedication and hard work in becoming a Clean Marina is an accomplishment this facility can be proud of and we welcome them to our growing Clean Marina family.”
