Oregon Statutes - Chapter 543 - Hydroelectric Projects - Section 543.250 - Permit; duration; transfer; cancellation; priority; terms and conditions; denial.

A preliminary permit may be issued for a period not exceeding a total of three years. It shall not be transferable except upon written approval of the Water Resources Commission, and may be canceled by order of the commission at any time upon proof to the commissionís satisfaction, after hearing, that the holder is not in good faith complying with the provisions of the permit. The holder of a preliminary permit which has not been canceled shall have priority of right to make application for a license covering the project for which the preliminary permit was issued, within the term of the permit or any lawful extension thereof. Except as otherwise specified in ORS 543.010 to 543.610, the commission may fix the terms and conditions of any preliminary permit issued thereunder, and each preliminary permit issued shall set forth all the terms and conditions. The commission may decline to grant any application for a preliminary permit. [Amended by 1985 c.673 §149; 1993 c.63 §1]
