We gathered feedback from stakeholders on proposed amendments to the Water (Ministerial) Regulation that will exempt low-risk stormwater use from requiring a Water Act licence.
We’ve heard from Albertans that the current regulation requirements for stormwater use can be an inefficient and expensive process, which can prevent stormwater projects from moving forward despite clear environmental, social and economic benefits.
Stakeholder feedback will help inform proposed regulation amendments that address:
- specific volumes of stormwater that should be exempt from requiring a Water Act licence
- specific uses of stormwater that should be exempt from requiring a Water Act licence
- whether regions facing water scarcity should have different stormwater licensing exemptions
