Mission Statement

"The Clean Marina Program is an ongoing endeavor, by the Marina Industry Alliance, determined to provide environmentally clean facilities and protect the State's coastal and inland waters from pollution through compliance of best management practices."


Our Responsibility

We are committed to development and implementation of our marina operational practices and policies that lead to our certification as a Clean Marina by the Marina Industry Alliance.   We expect that it will take approximately one year for the full process, and will require considerable work by our staff, moderate expense, and the full cooperation of our customers.  We do not expect that it will directly financially impact customers, but will require some of your attention and time to comply with the best management practices. Upon final certification, Rathbun Marina will be one of only 147 of approximately 12,000 marinas in the United States, and the only marina in Iowa to achieve this goal. When our written program is complete you may view by a click on the pdf here.
