Water: Codes of Practice

Notice

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

Water Act approvals, approval amendments and Code of Practice notices will be available through an online application process under a new Environmental Approvals System called OneStop. This new system will streamline the application process and increase the efficiency for approving applications.

Important Dates

  • Starting November 30, 2018, applications for Code of Practice notices will be completed and submitted online
  • Starting January 18, 2019, all new Water Act approvals and approval amendments will be completed and submitted online
