(a) Upon receipt of or while adjudicating an application for water use, the department may investigate or inspect the proposed diversion, withdrawal, or impoundment structures, the source of the water, meter records, gage data, well logs, and other competing uses for water within the area, to determine whether there is a possibility that existing water rights of other persons or the public interest will be adversely affected or impaired by the proposed appropriation. Failure of the applicant to cooperate in the investigation will result in rejection of the application.

(b) The commissioner will, in his or her discretion, require the applicant to

(1) submit water well information, including well depth, pump setting, and current static water level;

(2) drill test wells and observation wells;

(3) conduct pump and aquifer tests;

(4) provide test results or other hydrologic data and information necessary to better determine the effects of proposed appropriation on prior appropriators and the public interest;
