How we take care of our boats and personal watercraft's greatly influences the health of the Clinton River. 
You can do your part to prevent pollution by following these simple steps:

  • Use onshore restrooms and shore side facilities when in docks.
  • If your boat has a toilet, make sure your equipment is U.S. Coast Guard certified.
  • Empty portable toilets only at pump-out stations or at home.
  • Take dogs to the marina‚Äôs posted pet walk area (and always use a pooper scooper).
  • Keep boat and car engines property tuned for efficient fuel consumption and clean exhaust.  Routinely check for and fix oil and fuel leaks.
  • When cleaning your boat, look for non-toxic and phosphate-free cleansers.
  • Bring back what you take out.  Empty all trash bags on shore in garbage cans or take them home.
