Cleanest Marina

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Charleston Marina earned perfect marks on its latest Clean Marina Inspection, the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay announced earlier this month.

The marina received a 44 out of 44 on the inspection.

Started in 2005, the Oregon Clean Marina program gives guidance on solid waste and stormwater management, sewage and other issues. The Oregon State Marine Board oversees the program.

The Charleston Marina, which has taken part in the Clean Marina program since 2007, has more than 400 slips and new energy-saving LED lighting for its docks, parking lots and facilities through the Energy Trust of Oregon.
