St. Augustine Municipal Marina Designated a Clean Marina

There is a new flag flying over St. Augustine, a flag that every resident and visitor should be proud of, especially those who live or play along the area’s waterways.

On February 22, at a ceremony attended by both city officials and representatives of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), the St. Augustine Municipal Marina was officially recognized as a Clean Marina. The brief ceremony held at the marina concluded with the presentation of a Clean Marina flag that now proudly flies from the marina’s flag staff.

According to the Florida Marine Industries Association, the state’s boating industry has an annual economic impact of over $14 billion, twice that of the citrus industry and creates more than 180,000 jobs all across Florida.

"It is fitting that St. Augustine, as the Nation's Oldest City also the oldest port city, is in the forefront among municipal marinas, appreciating that protection of our waterways makes good business sense for Florida," said St. Augustine Mayor George Gardner. "St. Augustine is proud to be recognized for its role in keeping our state's waterways clean."

Also participating in the ceremony were Bill Green, Acting District Director, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Chris Lamb, Co-Chair of the Clean Boating Partnership, and Maia McGuire, PhD, Sea Grant Extension Agent.
