I. Chemical Analysis – Introduction
The Water Use Reporting System (WUR) is designed to gather, process and manage water
use, water level and chemical analysis data. This manual concentrates on the later, Chemical
Analysis.
Starting at the Water Use Reporting Home Page (Figure 8.0) select Licence List from the Menu
Options (located on the left of the screen) or select the Licence List link (underlined in blue).
Figure 8.0
Alberta Environment composed a list of Water Act Licences that you currently report on via a
paper copy this is what is known as your Licence List (Figure 8.1). Click on the blue underlined
Licence to view the Licence Details and the Locations associated with that Licence. Caveman
Industries was selected as the example (Figure 8.1).
Figure 8.1
The Licence Details, Licence Locations are displayed along with another menu. The Licence
Menu Options is where the functionality to Add/Change Submissions and define Inactive
Periods is to be found (Figure 8.2).

Use this Introduction as Reference on how to access the Licence Menu Options as this manual
focuses on using the Licence Menu Options and not how to display this menu.
Welcome to the Water Use Reporting (WUR) System.
II. Chemical Analysis – Data Entry Screens
There are four types of Specialized Chemical Analysis data captured by the WUR System.
They are:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Chemistry – Routine
Chemistry – Detailed
Bacteriological
Bacti-Total Coliforms
With each type of Chemical Analysis, WUR has created a unique Submission page. Each page
has its own characteristics on how it captures the data. Submissions may be Added and/or
Changed. Changes to Submissions are historically kept for a period of two years.

Chemistry – Routine – Add Submission
To enter a routine Chemistry lab report, click on Add Submission from the Licence Menu
Options. Next click on the Period date that you are entering data for (Figure 8.3).
Figure 8.3
With the Routine Chemistry data entry screen, all fields are required to be entered in order for the record
to save (Figure 8.4).
Figure 8.4
Document 8 – Alberta Environment Water Use Reporting (WUR) System
Page 5 of 34
Starting with the top portion of the form, enter the date the Sample was taken. The Sample date
must fall within the Period that you are reporting on for this example the Sample date must be
within the month of March of 2006. Enter the date using the format of, dd-mmm-yyyy or use the
calendar to select the date (Figure 8.5).
Figure 8.5
Using the 12-hour clock, enter the time the Sample was taken. Use the drop down box to select
am or pm (Figure 8.6).
Figure 8.6
Enter the Date that the Sample was analyzed using the format of dd-mmm-yyyy or using the
calendar to select the date. If part of the Sample was analyzed on a different date, then enter
the date that the majority of the Sample was tested (Figure 8.7).

Enter the Report Number and the Lab that analyzed the sample in the next two fields (Figure 8.8).
Figure 8.8
Enter a value for each of the parameters; if no value exists then enter a zero. Enter a Value
Qualifier if applicable, Value Qualifiers can be selected from the drop down menu and include
<,>, and Trace as choices. Change the Value Unit by selecting from the drop down menu, in
some cases there is only one choice (Figure 8.9).
Figure 8.9
Use of the Comment field is optional, however, if a particular parameter was analyzed on a
different day than the date of the rest of the report (the date already recorded in the Date Sample
Analyzed field), then include that information here (Figure 8.10).

Chemistry – Routine – Change Submission
Any information that requires updating when the Submission has already been entered, may be
accessed by first selecting Change Submission from the Licence Menu Options then selecting
View located beside the record you wish to Change (Figure 8.12).
On the Change Submission page you will notice that there is a Start Date, End Date and a
Refresh List button. If the Submission that you wish to change is not listed or you wish to
narrow down the List, enter the Start Date, the first Period Date and enter the End Date, the last
period date and hit the Refresh List button. The List will then be modified to only display the
Reporting Period that falls between the Start and End Date you specified (Figure 8.12).
Figure 8.12
Click on the reporting Period that the data is to be Changed (Figure 8.13).
Figure 8.13
The Change Submission screen lists two lines for every data entry field. The first line reveals
the original data entered and the second line is available for the corrected data.
