The Division of Environmental Enforcement (DEE) will immediately commence vessel and mooring registrations for the 2019-2020 year, according to a press release issued Friday by the V.I. Department of Planning and Natural Resources.
Commissioner Nominee Jean-Pierre L. Oriol reminds all permitted mooring holders that they must include in their applications to the Division of Environmental Protection the GPS coordinates of their mooring in “decimal degrees” format of the Geographic Coordinate System 1984 (e.g. 17.74891, -64.705368) for proper processing of their application for the 2019-2020 registration year. For new mooring applicants, you will be required to provide the GPS coordinate to DEE within 30 days of the installation of the mooring.
Boaters are asked to arrive with the most current registration cards to expedite the process. Boaters are reminded that registration after June 30 will be considered late and may be subject to a late fee.
Mail-in registration will also be accepted for both districts.
