42-3909.  Disapproval of application — Owner or operator entitled to hearing — Procedure — Judicial review. Any owner or operator aggrieved by the disapproval of an application or by the conditions imposed in a permit shall upon request therefor in writing within thirty (30) days after receipt of notice of such disapproval or conditional approval, be afforded an opportunity for a hearing before the water resources board, such hearing to be conducted in accordance with chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code, at a place convenient to the owner or operator. Such hearing shall be held for the purpose of determining whether the permit should be issued or whether the conditions imposed in a permit are reasonable, or whether a change in circumstances warrants a change in the conditions imposed in a valid permit. For purposes of such hearing the water resource board shall have power to administer oaths, examine witnesses, and issue in the name of the board subpoenas requiring testimony of witnesses and the production of evidence relevant to any matter in the hearing. A certified transcript of the proceedings and the evidence received at such hearing shall be maintained by the board. The board shall affirm, modify or reject the director’s decision, and make its decision in the form of an order to the director. Judicial review of a final determination by the board may be secured by the owner or operator by filing a petition for review as prescribed by chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code, in the district court of the county wherein the injection well is situated. The petition for review shall be served upon the chairman of the water resource board and upon the attorney general as provided by the Idaho rules of civil procedure.
