A change approval is written authorization to make changes in and about a stream. They are granted with terms and conditions attached. The terms and conditions may relate to the time of year in which you may do the work, and/or to other measures that protect the aquatic ecosystem, the hydraulic integrity of the stream channel and the rights of water users and landowners downstream.
A notification process for when activity does not involve diversion of water, maybe completed quickly and will have minimal impact on environment and other parties. Includes most stream crossings, maintenance and temporary change activities.
