Mooring buoys on Severn River

I am moving to a waterfront property on the Severn River (Severna Park, MD in Anne Arundel County) later this Fall. Does anyone have experience or know how to establish a mooring buoy? This would be in Yanz Cove. Is this something you need to secure through the county, state, or USCG?

Contact the County, AA County has strict permits on anything related to water or building...and it will probably take you months to get it...and don't even think about doing it without a permit!!! Ask the guy who built is house behind Dobbins Island

Thanks Chef. Ha! I've heard about the house on Dobbins Island from my in-laws (live in the area). I'll do it by the book.

Yea, unfortunately, from what I understand, his actions lead to a lot of revision to anything related to permits in AA county. A friend of ours has a place right near Dobbins and had a hell of time getting permits to rebuild his pier after TS Isabel hit the bay. Craitoo just did a pier, on the Magothy, you might try sending him a PM

Suprising update. It turns out that Anne Arundel Co, The State of MD, or any other governing body, does NOT require any permits of any kind for mooring buoys provided they do not impede private or public access such as private piers or public channels.

Smile mooring buoys

When I lived in Severna Park on the Magothy, as I remember, people had to go thru the USCG for mooring buoys. Seems that for anything connected to the land you had to go through the county and the environment folks, on the water it was the Coasties. This was about 15 years ago so my memory may be faulty. Anyway it doesn't hurt to check

This is consistent with my understanding.

Don't know Yantz cove, but Cattail Creek where I lived was very narrow, had a lot of private pieres and a community marina. I bleived the check with the USCG was to determine whether a mooring was impeding access

When I asked the USCG about installing a mooring they replied:

Sir you will need permit from the Virginia Marine Resource Commission, the United States Coast Guard and the Corps of Engineers. I would recommend you start at VMRC.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
