Anticipated delays in results from Alberta Wetland Rapid Evaluation Tool – Actual (ABWRET-A)

ABWRET-A is a standardized method for assessing the function of wetlands using onsite observations and offsite spatial data. The relative value determined by ABWRET-A is used to determine the replacement ratios and costs for wetland replacement where avoidance is not possible. 


The department is anticipating a delay in the response time on the processing of ABWRET-A submissions. The delay will be temporary and may impact ABWRET-A submissions from May to September 2022. ABWRET-A submissions are processed in the order in which they are received, and we encourage early submissions to avoid project delays.
