Oregon Statutes - Chapter 92 - Subdivisions and Partitions - Section 92.179 - Liability for costs of relocating utility facilities.

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a person who subdivides or partitions real property shall be liable for the reasonable and necessary costs of continuing utility service to structures on the property being subdivided or partitioned if the subdividing or partitioning causes utility lines to be moved or service to be interrupted, unless the person subdividing or partitioning the real property grants an easement to the utility service provider to accommodate continuing utility service to the structures. [1997 c.523 §2]

Note: 92.179 was added to and made a part of 92.010 to 92.190 by legislative action but was not added to any smaller series therein. See Preface to Oregon Revised Statutes for further explanation.
