Liability for costs of removal, salvage, storage and disposal

(1) Except as may otherwise be provided by the Department of State Lands by rule, the owner of an abandoned structure or derelict structure is liable to the department for all costs arising out of removal, salvage, storage and disposal of a structure seized under ORS 274.376 (Definitions for ORS 274.376 to 274.388) to 274.388 (Submerged Lands Enhancement Fund). Any order imposing liability for the costs is an order other than a contested case and is subject to review under ORS 183.484 (Jurisdiction for review of orders other than contested cases).

(2) If the department sells a structure seized under ORS 274.376 (Definitions for ORS 274.376 to 274.388) to 274.388 (Submerged Lands Enhancement Fund), the liability imposed under this section shall be reduced by the net proceeds of the sale.

(3) Except as may otherwise be provided by the department by rule, an owner of a structure whose only interest in the structure is a security interest is not liable for costs arising out of removal, salvage, storage and disposal of a structure under ORS 274.376 (Definitions for ORS 274.376 to 274.388) to 274.388 (Submerged Lands Enhancement Fund).
