Water Act Forms


Alberta Environment and Parks is transforming the way we administer Water Act approvals by moving to a web-based, electronic application system.

Water Act approvals applications, approval amendments applications and Code of Practice notices will be submitted through an online process in a new Environmental Approvals System called OneStop (EAS OneStop). This new system will increase the consistency and transparency of application review and streamline communication and application requirements for applicants, which will result in a more efficient process.

Important Dates

  • Effective November 30, 2018, Code of Practice notices are required to be submitted online in the OneStop system; for more information on the submission process, see:
  • Effective January 18, 2019, all new Water Act approvals applications and approval amendments applications are required to be submitted online in the OneStop system

Note: Applications for Water Act Licences are not affected by this change. Water Act Licences will continue to be submitted and reviewed through the current application process until further notice.
