Welcome to the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency’s Mooring Permitting and Registration System.

All moorings including buoys, boat lifts, and boat slips require a permit from TRPA and the payment of annual fees. Existing moorings with prior permits from TRPA must be registered annually through this online system. Owners of moorings that have not been previously permitted by TRPA must first apply for a permit through this system before the moorings can be registered. 

For step-by-step instructions for completing your registration on this site, please click here.

If you run into issues while using this system, click on the "Welcome" tab at the top right corner of the website and click "Request Support." You will be taken to a help request screen where you can outline the issue you are having. We will work to respond to your within two business days.
