The way you put it in your first post, this machine is older and has been running for years. Why not just pipe cooling water from the well and let it run? How would an inspector even come to know about it?
Also, if the machine has been running for that long and the condenser hasn't been descaled, it is probably using nearly twice as much condenser water as it would if it was clean. It might be so scaled up that you won't even be able to clean it out completely.
