Water Allocation Management

Currently, Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) uses its water policies and legislation to allocate and manage the quality and quantity of our water resources to ensure safe, secure drinking water, healthy aquatic ecosystems and reliable water supplies for the economy.

The Water Act guides the department’s work through the use of legislative tools such as approvals and licences, guidelines, and codes of practice. In addition, Alberta’s Water for Life strategy has provided the province’s overall water management roadmap since 2003.
