California Clean Boating Network for a Clean and Green California

Clean boating is green boating in California. Tips and tools to green California's waterways with boating conservation

Find green business solutions
green and clean boating for a green california The California Clean Boating Network consists of a collaboration of government, environmental, business, boating, and academic organizations working to increase and improve clean boating education efforts in California. Through the exchange of information and consideration of new trends in clean boating practices, CCBN members increase their ability to educate the boating public about clean boating practices.

There are approximately one million boats registered in California.

While most boaters appreciate the natural resources that abound in the watersheds in which they boat, many are unaware of the impacts boating can have on those resources.

Water pollution problems associated with boating include discharges of oil, fuel, sewage, trash, fishing line, toxic cleaning and maintenance products, bottom paints, gray water, and invasive aquatic species.

Members of the California Clean Boating Network (CCBN) believe that the contribution of pollution from boating to California’s waterways can be significantly reduced by educating boaters about the impacts of boating and about environmentally sound boating techniques.
