Sec. 14. (a) A declaration of a ground water emergency under this chapter is effective when a copy of a declaration is served under IC 4-21.5-3-1 upon a person who owns the significant ground water withdrawal facility that is reasonably believed to have caused the failure of the complainant's water well.

(b) As soon as possible after a declaration of a ground water emergency has been made, copies of the declaration shall be given to the newspapers of general circulation located in the affected county.  The notification to newspapers required by this subsection is in addition to the minimum procedural duties required of the department under IC 4-21.5 and does not satisfy service of process by publication under IC 4-21.5-3-1(f).

(c) If the emergency requires action before service can be completed under subsection (a), oral notification in person by a representative of the department and authorized by the director is sufficient until service can be completed.  Oral notification is effective for not more than ninety-six (96) hours.
