Herrington Harbour wins environmental award

The National Marine Manufacturers Association has awarded its fourth Boating Facilities Environmental Responsibility Award to Herrington Harbour Marinas.

Herrington Manor South managing owner E. Steuart Chaney won praise for developing a low-profile bulkhead system replacing more than 1,000 feet of vertical bulkhead with a naturally grassy slope, giving rise to a marsh that provides a home for wildlife.

The riprap used for shoreline stabilization provides maintenance-free protection and creates a shallow-water habitat, the association said.

As a result, the marina is surrounded by marshes where storm-water runoff is filtered before it enters the bay. At Herrington Harbor North, storm water is filtered through two large sediment ponds and acres of marsh.
