The mooring standards engagement was an opportunity for Albertans to share feedback on a proposed plan to establish a disturbance standard. The proposed plan would simplify the approval process to place a mooring structure in a waterbody, such as a dock, boat lift, swimming platform or buoy anchor.
Establishing a disturbance standard will reduce red tape and eliminate the need for most dock owners to apply for an authorization if they follow all requirements. This would improve wait times currently caused by the need to authorize thousands of docks.
