Summary

The Environmental Management and Protection Act, 2002 (EMPA) and the Water Regulations provides for the protection of aquatic habitat and states that a permit is required: to alter the bed, bank or boundary of any water body or water course; to remove or add any material to the bed, bank or boundary of any water body or watercourse; or to remove vegetation from the bed, bank or boundary or any water body or water course. Aquatic Habitat Protection Permits are issued by the Water Security Agency (WSA). Authorizations may also be required from other agencies. Exemptions for some types of work are available, and are being developed by the WSA.
