Clean Boating

The small amount of raw sewage, litter and used oil or cleaning products dumped off the boat might not seem like much, but the impact swells when multiplied by the thousands of recreational and commercial boaters who do the same. Being a good skipper means keeping our waters clean and healthy. Check out Ohio’s Clean Boater Program for details on how you can become a Clean Boater.
