Repair of unsafe works by chief engineer--Cost as lien against property--Bidding
Upon failure or refusal of an owner of unsafe works to make the changes necessary to
secure the safety of the works pursuant to the chief engineer's order or order of the board, the chief
engineer may enter upon the property where the works are located and make the necessary changes.
The cost of the work shall be borne by the owner of the works and may be recorded as a lien against
any property of the owner until paid. This section does not limit any other remedy against the owner
of the works. The chief engineer shall comply with the bidding provisions of chapters 5-18A and 5-18B unless the chief engineer determines that compliance with those provisions will result in harm
to public health or property.
