The Westbrook Harbor Management Plan requires that all private moorings along the Westbrook shoreline be registered with the town of Westbrook.
Applications and renewals for beach and Patchogue River moorings should be made with online mooring by clicking here:
The procedure is that the applicant fill out the application online and pay on the website. Upon completion of the application, the information is sent to the Harbormaster for his approval and issuance of the mooring sticker, which will be mailed out. The sticker should be mailed out within two days of the Harbormaster's approval. GPS positions of all moorings as well as an email contact and cell phone information should be included on all applications. The GPS positions will allow online mapping of all moorings, contact information used for communications such as notices to vacate the mooring field in case of severe storm, or notices for mooring renewal.
The mooring tackle requirements for beach moorings have recently been revised for 2022.

If you have questions, please contact Harbormaster Harry Plaut at (860) 982-7555 for requirements specific to each mooring.
Please note that state law requires all moorings to be marked with a blue striped white ball.
John Rie, Chairman Westbrook Harbor Management Commission
On or after June 15, the Westbrook Harbormaster will begin removing unregistered moorings which are deemed dangerous or with nonconforming tackle.
