Loggerhead RiversEdge Marina Awarded S.C. Clean Marina Certification

Loggerhead RiversEdge Marina, nestled along Charleston’s historic Ashley River, is the newest member of the South Carolina Clean Marina Program. In March, Loggerhead RiversEdge Marina General Manager Tracey Nelson and his staff were awarded a S.C. Clean Marina certification for their demonstrated commitment to protecting our local water quality.

“Becoming a certified Clean Marina is very important to us, and we strive to provide excellent customer service, while doing our part to protect our valued waterways,” said Nelson. “Receiving the Clean Marina certification is a great recognition.”

Loggerhead RiversEdge Marina achieved this designation by adopting Clean Marina best management practices to provide a safe and more environmentally friendly marina to their guests and the Charleston community.
