The chief shall review each application for a permit and shall determine whether or
not a permit shall be issued.
No permit shall be issued less than fifteen days after the filing date of the application
for any well work except plugging or replugging; and no permit for plugging or replugging
shall be issued less than five days after the filing date of the application except
a permit for plugging or replugging a dry hole: Provided, That if the applicant certifies
that all persons entitled to notice of the application under the provisions of this
article have been served in person or by certified mail, return receipt requested,
with a copy of the permit application, including the erosion and sediment control
plan, if required, and the plat required by section six of this article, and further
files written statements of no objection by all such persons, the chief may issue
the permit at any time.
The chief may cause such inspections to be made of the proposed location as to assure
adequate review of the application. The permit shall not be issued, or shall be conditioned, including conditions with
respect to the location of the well and access roads, prior to issuance if the chief
(1) The proposed well work will constitute a hazard to the safety of persons; or
(2) The plan for soil erosion and sediment control is not adequate or effective; or
(3) Damage would occur to publicly owned lands or resources; or
(4) The proposed well work fails to protect fresh water sources or supplies. Upon the issuance of any permit pursuant to the provisions of this article, the
chief shall transmit a copy of such permit to the office of the assessor for the county
in which the well is located.
