Oregon Statutes - Chapter 543 - Hydroelectric Projects - Section 543.420 - Noncompletion of construction within prescribed time; judicial proceedings; sale of property; disposition of proceeds; rights of purchaser.

If construction of a project under license has been begun but has not been completed within the time prescribed in the license or in any lawful extension thereof, then the Attorney General, upon request of the Water Resources Commission, shall institute proceedings in the circuit court for the county in which some part of the project is situated, for termination of the rights of the licensee under the license, the sale of the property embraced in the project, and for such other relief as the case may demand. Any judgment or decree entered in the proceeding shall provide for distribution of the proceeds of the sale to the parties equitably entitled thereto. The purchaser at any such sale shall take the property subject to all the terms and conditions of the license under which construction was begun, except insofar as they may be modified by the commission. [Amended by 1985 c.673 §156]
