No exemption shall be granted hereunder unless the landowner shall apply to the chief engineer of the division of water resources for certification of such dam or reservoir and a description of the land donated within five (5) years after actual completion of the dam or reservoir or within two (2) years after such land is listed for taxation if such land was exempt from taxation under the laws of the state of Kansas at the time of the completion of the dam or reservoir whichever is later. Such exemption shall be applicable to such property for a period of twenty (20) years after the original certification of such dam or reservoir by the chief engineer except that if the landowner shall apply for such exemption more than two (2) years after the actual completion of the dam or reservoir such exemption shall be applicable to such property for a period of twenty (20) years after the date of the actual completion of the dam or reservoir.
