Three marinas from Carolina Beach have been certified as North Carolina Clean Marinas, according to state regulations.
The Mona Black Marina, Federal Point Yacht Club and Carolina Beach State Park earned that designation in the Clean Marina program. To get this certification, owners need to prepare spill prevention plans and conduct safety and emergency planning. They also have to control boat maintenance activities to protect the water quality.
Marinas have to get recertified every couple years.
Other current clean marinas include Cypress Landing Marina, Harbour Village Marina, Wilmington Marine Center, Joyner Marina, Southport Marina and New Bern Grand Marina.
