The Government of Alberta has changed the way it provides secure online access to the Water Use Reporting System (WURS). To continue accessing WURS, you will be required to log in using a MyAlberta Digital ID account. If you do not have an account, you will be required to create one. Please visit MyAlberta Digital ID for more information and to set up an account.

This site enables Alberta water licence holders to report their water use in support of 'Water for Life: Alberta's Strategy for Sustainability'.

Important notice

Effective April 4, 2022, Water Act applications for temporary diversion licences (TDL) and amendments must be submitted through the Digital Regulatory Assurance System (DRAS).

The Water Act Temporary Diversion Licence Electronic Review System (WATERS) will no longer accept new TDL applications from Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) applicants.

Active TDL holders will continue to review and manage their previously issued authorizations in WATERS. This also applies to any pending TDL applications submitted on or before March 30, 2022, in WATERS.

Any TDLs that were issued via WATERS will continue to require reporting in the Water User Reporting System (WURS). Any TDLs that are issued via DRAS will report directly in DRAS.

WATERS will still be active for Alberta Energy Regulator applicants.
