CHRISTIANSTED — Commissioner nominee Jean-Pierre Oriol of the Department of Planning and Natural Resources said that the Division of Environmental Enforcement (DEE) will immediately begin vessel and mooring registrations for the 2019-2020 year.
Oriol said all permitted mooring holders 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 your mooring.
Boaters are asked to walk with the most current registration cards to expedite the process. Boaters are also reminded that registration after June 30th will be considered late and may be subject to a late fee.
Mail in registration will also be accepted for both districts.
