(b) A person shall file an application for a water right under 11 AAC 93.040 or for a temporary water use authorization under 11 AAC 93.220 before

(1) the consumptive use of more than 5,000 gallons of water from a single source in a single day;

(2) the regular daily or recurring consumptive use of more than 500 gpd from a single source for more than 10 days per calendar year;

(3) the non-consumptive use of more than 30,000 gpd (0.05 cubic feet per second) from a single source; or

(4) any water use that may adversely affect the water rights of other appropriators or the public interest.

(c) A person using less than the amount of water described in (b) of this section acquires no water right or priority unless an application is filed and a permit or certificate is issued under 11 AAC 93.035 - 11 AAC 93.140. The use of water without a permit or certificate is subject to appropriation by others, and the use of water without a water right is subject to curtailment in order to supply water to lawful appropriators of record or to protect the public interest.
