New Jersey Clean Marina Program

New Jersey Clean Vessel Act Program

    Since 1995, the New Jersey Clean Vessel Act Program has provided marina owners in New Jersey with an opportunity to apply for funds to install vessel pump-outs at their facilities to collect and dispose of vessel-generated sewage. With the assistance of the Extension Program there are now 177 pump-outs and five (7) pump-out vessels serving boaters throughout the state. Marina owners can contact the Marine Trades Association of New Jersey for an application for funds to construct a pumpout facility. Boaters can visit for information on the location of pumpout facilities.

Vessel Waste Water Management

    The N.J. Department of Environmental Protection required holders of the Basic Industrial Stormwater General Permit to eliminate the discharge of boat bottom washing wastewater by March 1, 2010. Marinas have the option of capturing the wastewater and recycling it, hauling it away for proper disposal, request permission to connect to the sanitary sewer where applicable, or ceasing the practice of washing vessels. Recent advances in bottom paint technology will also help marina operators manage their vessel wash wastewater.

Shrinkwrap Recycling

    The New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium, along with the DEP's Coastal Management Office are pleased to offer the Shrink Wrap Plus Recycling Program. This initiative, made possible by grants from I BOAT NJ, aims to increase the number of participating marinas, boaters and municipalities statewide that collect and recycle this non-biodegradable material by supplying funding for shrink wrap collection.
