Sec. § 408.407
Reimbursement of utility by State for relocation of facility located on or near certain highways.


For the purposes of this section:


“Cost of relocation” means the entire amount paid by a utility properly attributable to the relocation of its facilities, including removal, reconstruction and replacement after deducting therefrom any increase in value of the new facility and any salvage value derived from the old facility, and includes the costs of all rights and interests necessary in land and the costs of any other rights required to accomplish such relocation.


“Utility” means any privately, publicly or cooperatively owned systems for supplying telephone, electric power and light, gas, water, sewer and like service to the public or a segment of the public.


Whenever the Director, after consulting with the utility concerned, determines that any utility facility which now is, or hereafter may be, located in, over, along or under any highway in the federal-aid primary or secondary systems or in the interstate system, including extensions thereof within urban areas, as such systems are defined in the Federal-Aid Highway Acts and are accepted by and assented to by the State of Nevada, should be relocated, the utility owning or operating such utility facility shall relocate the same in accordance with the order of the Director. The cost of any such relocation shall be ascertained and paid by the State as part of the cost of such federally aided project, provided the proportionate part of such cost is reimbursable from federal funds under a Federal-Aid Highway Act or any other Act of Congress under which the State is entitled to reimbursement for all or part of such cost.


This section does not apply where a payment of relocation or removal costs by the State would be inconsistent with the terms of a permit issued by the Director pursuant to NRS 408.423.
