2.

The Division may compromise and settle any claim for any penalty as set forth in this section in such amount in the discretion of the Division as may appear appropriate and equitable under all of the circumstances, including the posting of a performance bond by the violator. If a violator is subject to the imposition of more than one civil administrative penalty for the same violation, the Division shall compromise and settle the claim for the penalty as set forth in this section in such amount as to avoid the duplication of penalties.

3.

No penalty may be imposed pursuant to this section for the failure to perform a required act within the time required if the delay was caused by a natural disaster or other circumstances which are beyond the control of the violator.

4.

Any person who 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, or an administrative order issued pursuant to subsection 2 of NRS 459.3872 or a court order issued pursuant to subsection 1 of NRS 459.3872, or who fails to pay a civil administrative penalty in full is subject, upon order of the court, to a civil penalty not to exceed $10,000 per day of the violation, and each days continuance of the violation constitutes a separate and distinct violation. Any penalty imposed pursuant to this subsection may be recovered with costs in a summary proceeding by the Attorney General.
