MOECC announces that changes to the PTTW process now in effect

from By Simon Gautrey, MSc, MBA, P.Geo.

Early in April, the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) announced that its planned changes to the Permit To Take Water (PTTW) process had been approved in late March 2016 and are now in effect. The changes were explained in a series of well-attended workshops held across the province by the MOECC in late March and early April. These changes included the introduction of new water taking regulations that allow for certain types of takings to fall within the Environmental Activity and Sector Registry (EASR) framework as long as criteria are met. These EASR eligible takings will no longer require a PTTW. They include groundwater or storm water takings for construction dewatering, and surface water takings for specific road construction purposes (e.g. dust suppression, seeding, compaction, amongst others). more
