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 predefine 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.
