(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.

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

(3) conduct pump and aquifer tests;

(5) provide any other information necessary to make a finding under AS 46.15.080 .
