Water Act Approvals 


Water Act approvals are required when an activity will impact a water body or when the works will divert and use surface or groundwater. Both Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) and the Alberta Energy Regulators (AER) grant approvals, licences, and codes of practice through the Water Act. AER has authority over energy resource activities while AEP has authority over all other sectors.

Forms for Water Act approvals can be found:
