Under the Water Act and Public Lands Act, Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (ESRD) manages the authorization process for activities in water bodies and Crown lands in the vicinity of water bodies (beds and shores), includingerosion control, bank stabilization, stream crossings, and the construction of flood mitigation structures. To help Albertans rebuild after the june 2013 flood, ESRD developed an Expedited Authorizations Process for Flood Recovery (EAPFR) projects. The EAPFR combines and streamlines the application process for Water Act Approvals and Public Lands Act Temporary Field Authorizations.
