The Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has recognized Three Belles Marina on Smith Cove off the Niantic River in East Lyme as only the eleventh recreational boating facility to be certified as a “Connecticut Clean Marina.” This certification acknowledges the facilities efforts to go beyond regulatory compliance and participate in voluntary measures to keep Connecticut waters clean.

“The DEP applauds Three Belles Marina’s voluntary commitment to reduce the environmental impacts of their marina operation,” said Gina McCarthy, Commissioner of the DEP. “We encourage all marinas, yacht clubs and boatyards to follow the lead of the Three Belles Marina and participate in this program.”

“The Clean Marina certification demonstrates our commitment to protect our most precious resource, Smith Cove and the Long Island Sound, for the future enjoyment of our customers and for future generations of boaters” says Tobey & Libby Russ, owners of Three Belles Marina.

To become certified as a Connecticut Clean Marina, marina operators must show that their facility operates in compliance with all applicable environmental regulatory requirements, and illustrate voluntary operation at standards above and beyond compliance in seven categories: mechanical activities, painting and fiberglass repair, hauling and storing boats, fueling, facility management, emergency planning, and boater education.
Certified Clean Marinas are authorized to fly a Clean Marina flag and to use the Clean Marina logo on their publications and letterhead.
