Nevada Public Health and Safety
Sec. § 459.3872
Injunctive relief; levy of civil administrative penalty; notice of levy of penalty; request for hearing; payment of penalty.


If any person violates any of the provisions of NRS 459.380 to 459.3834, inclusive, or 459.387, or any regulation or order adopted or issued pursuant thereto, the Division may institute a civil action in a court of competent jurisdiction for injunctive or any other appropriate relief to prohibit and prevent the violation and the court may proceed in the action in a summary manner.


Except as otherwise provided in NRS 445C.010 to 445C.120, inclusive, a person who violates a provision of NRS 459.380 to 459.3834, inclusive, or 459.387, or any regulation or order adopted pursuant thereto, is liable to a civil administrative penalty as set forth in NRS 459.3874. If the violation is of a continuing nature, each day during which it continues constitutes an additional, separate and distinct offense. No civil administrative penalty may be levied until after notification to the violator by certified mail or personal service. The notice must include a reference to the section of the statute, regulation, order or condition of a permit violated, a concise statement of the facts alleged to constitute the violation, a statement of the amount of the civil penalties to be imposed and a statement of the violator’s right to a hearing. The violator has 20 days after receipt of the notice within which to deliver to the Division a written request for a hearing. After the hearing if requested, and upon a finding that a violation has occurred, the Administrator of the Division may issue a final order and assess the amount of the fine. If no hearing is requested, the notice becomes a final order upon the expiration of the 20-day period. Payment of the penalty is due when a final order is issued or when the notice becomes a final order. The authority to levy a civil administrative penalty is in addition to all other provisions for enforcement of NRS 459.380 to 459.387, inclusive, and the payment of a civil administrative penalty does not affect the availability of any other provision for enforcement in connection with the violation for which the penalty is levied.
