Marinas & Recreational Boating Workgroup

Sailing Towards Cleaner Waters: The Guardians of Our Blue Backyard" unveils the pivotal role of the Marinas and Recreational Boating Workgroup, a collective beacon guiding us through the murky waters of nonpoint source pollution. Born from the collaborative spirit of the Interagency Coordinating Committee, this forum is where state, federal, and local agencies, alongside marinas and marine advocates, converge to chart a course for clearer, cleaner marine environments. With the California Coastal Commission and the State Water Resources Control Board at the helm, this group's biannual gatherings since 2003 have been nothing short of a crusade against the invisible threats lurking in our beloved waters.

Diving deeper, the Antifouling Strategy Sub-Workgroup emerges as the specialized task force confronting the challenge of copper-based pesticides in antifouling paints—a silent adversary to water quality. Working in tandem with the broader marina workgroup, this dedicated team is pioneering strategies to keep our hulls clean and our waters pristine. Join us on this voyage of discovery and stewardship, as we celebrate the unsung heroes and innovative strategies safeguarding the sanctity of our recreational waters and marine habitats. Together, we're setting sail towards a sustainable future, one ripple at a time.


As we cast our gaze towards the horizon, the Green Marina initiative stands as a testament to San Francisco's unwavering commitment to sustainability. Nestled in the heart of our city, this project is not just a beacon of green innovation but a vibrant community space where every dock, wave, and gust of wind carries the promise of a greener tomorrow. Together, we are charting a course towards a future where environmental stewardship and community spirit sail in unison, making the Green Marina not only a jewel of San Francisco but a global standard for sustainable living by the water.
