The Skagit County Health District has awarded the Anacortes Skyline Marina the highest rating attainable, 5-Star, in the EnviroStars Program. The 5-Star level of performance qualifies the Skyline Marina to be designated as one of the official Washington State “Clean Marinas.”
Nationally recognized, the goal of the EnviroStars Program is to give businesses incentives and recognition for reducing hazardous waste, while giving consumers an objective way to identify environmentally sound businesses. Clean Marina Washington was created in 2005 as an expansion of the EnviroStars program and is an incentive-based certification program in which marinas assess their operations and implement improvements to better protect the environment.
The Anacortes Skyline Marina, which opened in 1965, completed its initial certification and was awarded the 5-Star rating by the Health District. The Anacortes based Marina was first certified at the 4-Star level in December 2005, and has been re-inspected annually to maintain this level. As a result of continually improving internal operating processes and procedures, the marina earned a 5-Star rating.
