Approval officers forward all Part 2 applications (the technical details of the application) to Environment and Parks and Alberta Health Services for response. They also provide Alberta Transportation with a copy if the application will involve road use. The local irrigation district is provided with a copy if the confined feeding operation would be located within the irrigation district. All dairy applications are forwarded to Agriculture and Forestry for review.
Approval officers consider and address in their decisions all responses from the referral agencies.
