Directive on use of approvals to allow riverbed armouring to provide scour protection for pipelines

Description

This Directive establishes the policy and identifies the circumstances under which Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP or the Department) or the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) will consider applications for riverbed armouring of pipelines that do not meet scour depth requirements under the Code of Practice for Pipelines and Telecommunication Lines Crossing a Water Body (the Code). The policy intent is to provide some flexibility for pipelines installed prior to the adoption of the Code while maintaining public safety and minimizing ecological risk.
