45-559. Well spacing requirements for withdrawing groundwater for transportation to an active management area
Except as provided in section 45-554, subsection A and except for groundwater withdrawn and transported pursuant to section 45-555, subsections E and F, a person may not use a well constructed after September 21, 1991 for the purpose of withdrawing groundwater for transportation to an active management area pursuant to article 8.1 of this chapter unless the person wishing to use the well for that purpose applies to the director for approval and the director approves the application. The director shall approve the application if the director determines that the withdrawals for that purpose will not unreasonably increase damage to surrounding land or other water users from the concentration of wells. In making this determination, the director shall follow the criteria for proposed withdrawals in the rules adopted pursuant to section 45-598, subsection A.
