Delta Watershed Boating Program Working Group

The Keep the Delta Clean Program (KDC) is implemented in partnership with the Contra Costa County Public Works Department, Sacramento County Stormwater/Water Resources Department, San Joaquin Department of Public Works, Solano County Stormwater/Water Resources Department, Yolo Planning Resources and Public Works Department, City of Stockton, California Coastal Commission and the California Department of Boating and Waterways.

Representatives from these agencies formed the Delta Watershed Boating Program Working Group (DBP) to collaborate on the development and implementation of Phase II of the KDC. The DBP is also working in cooperation to accomplish the associated tasks as outlined in the grant agreement between Contra Costa County (acting as lead agency and in representation of the DBP) and the grant funding agency, the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB).

Phase I (May 2004-March 2007) of the KDC focused on designing an effective pollution prevention campaign while field testing various marina-based pollution prevention infrastructure (environmental services) throughout the western Delta or East Contra Costa County. During Phase II the DBP, in partnership with local Delta marinas, installed and promoted marina-based pollution prevention infrastructure, including 60 pet waste stations, 65 recycling bins, 13 fishing line recycling centers, 40 cigarette butt bins, 15 informational kiosks, 105 leak-proof dock boxes, 80 leak-proof dock box liners, five certified used oil collection center and 15 oil absorbent exchange centers. As of September 2007, 25 marinas have agreed to provide locations for and management of these environmental services provided by the KDC.

Marine Partners

Marina operators and harbor masters from participating marinas play a vital roll in the KDC Program as Marina Demonstration Sites, the front line for educating boaters. They also serve as role models to other marinas that are working to adopt more environmentally conscious operations. The KDC Program attributes much of its success to these facilities and their staff  through their commitment to sustaining the health of the Delta and active participation maintaining environmental services for the boating community.
