In acquiring property by eminent domain, no water, watering facilities or water right of any person shall be taken separate and apart from the land served by such water, watering facilities or water rights, without fair and adequate compensation to be awarded for such land and water, watering facilities or water rights.
B. In seeking to establish a state park or monument on state or federally owned land, the board shall not request the termination or cancellation of any valid lease, permit, government land entry, mining claim, privilege or other right unless fair and adequate compensation is awarded to the holder of such lease, permit, privilege or other right. If the amount of the compensation cannot be determined by agreement, the board may proceed to cause such lease, permit, privilege, government land entry, mining claim or right to be terminated or cancelled if such can be lawfully done by the state or federal agency having jurisdiction thereof, or the board may proceed to acquire the same by eminent domain. In any event the holder of such lease, permit, privilege, government land entry, mining claim or right shall receive fair and adequate compensation for the cost of and damage to his property interest or loss of his lease, privilege, government land entry, mining claim or permit. In determining the amount of such compensation, consideration shall be given to any preferential rights of renewal and other preferential rights of the owner or holder thereof, the damage to the remaining land, damage by access roads, and damage to the rights and operation which such owner may have and all other relevant factors.Prev | Next
