The Skagit County Health District has awarded the Skyline Marnia, operated by (name), the highest rating attainable in the EnviroStars Program. The 5-star level of performance concurrently qualifies both facilities to be designated as official Washington State “Clean Marinas.”
Nationally recognized, the goal of the EnviroStars Program is to give businesses incentives and recognition for reducing hazardous waste, while giving consumers an objective way to identify environmentally sound businesses. Clean Marina Washington was created in 2005 as an expansion of the EnviroStars program and is an incentive-based certification program in which marinas assess their operations and implement improvements to better protect the environment. The two programs continue to work seamlessly as one program in Kitsap County and four other western Washington counties.
The Skyline Marina, which opened in 1695, just completed its initial certification and was awarded the 5-Star rating by the Health District. The Anacortes based Marina was first certified at the 4-Star level in December 2005 and has been re-inspected annually to maintain this level for three years. As a result of continually improving internal operating processes and procedures, and by expanding its outreach and education programs, the marina earned a 5-Star rating..
