Water Withdrawal, Water Discharge and Hydrostatic Testing

 Foothills shall, prior to withdrawing, diverting or impounding quantities of water from or discharging quantities of water into any waterbody or groundwater system, ensure to the satisfaction of the designated officer that water withdrawals and discharges will not have an unreasonably adverse effect on

  • (a) the level or rate of flow of water in the waterbody or well from which the water withdrawal is made or into which the discharge is made;

  • (b) the existing use of water from the waterbody from which the water withdrawal is made or into which the discharge is made;

  • (c) the transportation on or access to the waterbody from which the water withdrawal is made or into which the discharge is made;

  • (d) the trapping or fishing by persons residing in the vicinity of the pipeline;

  • (e) the fish populations in or dependent on the waterbody from which the water withdrawal is made or into which the discharge is made;

  • (f) any waterfowl or mammal populations using any waterbody or its margins from which the water withdrawal is made or into which the discharge is made;

  •  (1) Foothills shall, when designing or operating a camp water system, compressor station water system, granular material washing system or any other water-related system, design or operate the system, as the case may be, in a manner that will minimize the use of water.

  • (2) Foothills shall, when carrying out hydrostatic testing of the pipeline, carry out such tests in a manner that will minimize the use of water.

 Foothills shall appoint a qualified person to supervise the withdrawal or discharge of water used for constructing or testing the pipeline.

 Foothills shall, in a manner satisfactory to the designated officer, provide site-specific information in respect of each water withdrawal or discharge used for constructing or testing the pipeline.
