Huntsville Marine and Recreation Environment Policy
Huntsville Marine and Recreation is a member of the Ontario Marine Operators Association and a supporter of its Clean Marine Program. Huntsville Marine is a 4 Star Environmental Partner of this program and continues to shape its products and practices to obtain the highest 5 Star level. Our business practices include recycling of all packaging materials, waste oils and lubricants, shrink wrap materials, cleaning products and batteries. Huntsville Marine has an ongoing program to reduce energy consumptions through efficient operations. Huntsville Marine as part of our environmental policy does not use any pesticides or feritlizers on its properties. Our water front to the degree it is allowed is left in a natural state. The main marina property is gravel surface covered with the exception of the front driveway. This promotes proper drainage and filtering of surface waters prior to entering the lake. We support and promote the Marine Environmental Code of Ethics.

Marina Environment Code of Ethics
Protect our Ontario waterways from harmful dumping! Return all bottles, cans, paper, plastics and other waste to shore for proper disposal or recycling. When possible clean up after those who are less thoughtful.
Use environmental compatible materials! The OMOA encourages the use of non-contaminating products in boat operation and maintenance.
Maintain our clean water heritage! Help this marina achieve its goal of preventing the release of waste into sensitive waters.
Respect operating regulations! Adhering to speed restrictions helps avoid wake damage to shorelines and property. Unnecessary noise can be offensive.
