Pollution Prevention


In an effort to improve the water quality in Puget Sound, the Department of Ecology has assembled and published sets of Best Management Practices (BMP) to serve as guidelines for marina operators and boat owners. These BMPs, if followed, will help prevent pollution from entering the waters of Liberty Bay and Puget Sound.

When cleaning or conducting repairs on your boat while it’s in the water, we ask that you follow the recommended practices in these documents. Thank you for being a good steward of Liberty Bay!

Photos like the ones below need to be a thing of the past. Please help us improve the water quality of Liberty Bay!
