Two marinas get award for pollution prevention

Herrington Harbor-South in Friendship and Port Annapolis Marina in Annapolis were among six marinas named a "Clean Marina" by boating industry executives and members of the environmental community.

These marinas have met the pollution prevention standards established by Maryland's Clean Marina Committee and the Department of Natural Resources as part of the agency's Clean Marina Initiative.

FOR THE RECORD - Last Monday's Business Digest: An item erroneously referred to a new partnership between the Anne Arundel Medical Center and the YWCA. The medical center formed a partnership with the YMCA. The Y's most popular program will be offered at AAMC's Donner Community Health Pavilion starting Sept. 7.
The Sun regrets the errors.

Each of the marinas has implemented pollution controls in such areas as petroleum storage and transfer; sewage disposal; solid, liquid and hazardous wastes; and storm water runoff as part of their being named a certified Clean Marina.
