Release Date: January 16, 2020
Today we released Manual 019: Decommissioning, Closure, and Abandonment of Dams at Energy Projects. The manual explains how we assess and process dam decommissioning, closure, and abandonment submissions that are required under section 34 of the Water (Ministerial) Regulation and part 9 of Alberta Environment and Parks’ Alberta Dam and Canal Safety Directive. It does not introduce any new requirements.
