Aquatic Habitat Protection Permit (AHPP)
A Water Security Agency AHPP permit is required prior to the start of any work that occurs in the bed, bank or boundary of a water body or watercourse. Work conducted on water bodies or watercourses that do not flow into other surface waters and are wholly within the boundaries of land that is owned by the person carrying out the activity are exempt from the permit.
For more information on AHPP permits, contact (306) 787-0726.
Farm Stewardship Program (FSP) Environmentally Sensitive Areas
It is the responsibility of the producer to determine if a project is located in an environmentally sensitive area. The online mapping tool is available to assist producers applying for certain BMPs in recognizing if their project(s) is/are located in these areas.
Projects located in environmentally sensitive areas may have special requirements.
