Water

Water Management Basins [BCOGC-44435]

Water management basins define locations of water withdrawal when applying for a basin Section 8 application. If it is not possible for a company to pre-define all locations of water withdrawal, companies are then able to apply for a basin Section 8 approval. A basin Section 8 approval allows for withdrawals of up to 45 m3/day, to a maximum of 5,000 m3/year, specified to a drainage basin or basins. Basin Section 8 approvals are limited to small water uses where it is not possible to pre-define withdrawal points, including geophysical exploration, winter ice road construction, dust suppression, hydrostatic testing of pipelines, and other uses, provided the volume use restrictions can be met.
