Some activities require an approval prior to the work being conducted; such as a dam or a ditch which must not be constructed without approval and a water well has to be built according to specific requirements.

Enforcement fines may be levied for the misconduct of the Act.

Please make sure that you are aware of the Alberta Water Act and its requirements before you begin water work.
