Invitation for Feedback on New Water Conservation Policy Manual

(212.61 KB)

Release Date: April 20, 2021

We are seeking feedback on the draft Manual XXX: Water Conservation Policy for Upstream Oil and Gas Operations. The manual provides guidance for Water Act licence applications that fall under the scope of the Government of Alberta's Water Conservation Policy for Upstream Oil and Gas Operations. This public comment period builds on our engagement with indigenous peoples, stakeholders, municipalities, environmental nongovernmental organizations, and industry during initial development of the manual.

We are seeking feedback specifically on the manual, including whether it provides the necessary clarity around submitting water licence applications to the AER. We are not able to respond to feedback on the policy itself, as that document belongs to the Government of Alberta.

To provide feedback, complete the comment form and send it by email to @email. Feedback will be accepted through May 21, 2021. All feedback received will be reviewed and may be used in finalizing the manual. Comments provided through this consultation will form part of the public record and, at the discretion of the AER, any comment received may also be attributed to the specific individuals providing it. Personal information provided with comments will be collected, used, and disclosed in accordance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. The AER may use the personal contact information you provide for follow-up communication related to your feedback.

The draft edition of the manual is available on our website, > Regulating Development > Rules and Directives > Manuals.
