USA: DNR Seeks Public Input on Mooring Buoy Plans for Quartermaster Harbor


The Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is seeking input from boaters and the public interested in helping to develop a plan for mooring buoys on state-owned aquatic lands in Quartermaster Harbor. The public workshop will be May 31 at McMurray Middle School on Vashon Island.

Staff from DNR will present a preliminary plan showing the proposed layout for mooring buoy fields in the Burton and Dockton areas of Quartermaster Harbor. DNR will also explain how the preliminary plan proposes to address requirements for regulatory permits required by King County, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the US Army Corps of Engineers.

DNR staff will also review pending buoy license applications with applicants and confirm existing buoy locations, including those that are unused and may be removed over time. Buoy users who haven’t yet submitted applications are encouraged to attend. Application forms will be available at the meeting, and staff will be available to assist with questions.
