Subdivision 1. Declaration of emergency.  If the managers find that conditions exist that present a clear and imminent danger to the health or welfare of the people of the watershed district, and that to delay action would prejudice the interests of the people of the watershed district or would be likely to cause irreparable harm, the managers may declare the existence of an emergency and designate the location, nature, and extent of the emergency.

Subd. 2. Project order.  If an emergency has been declared to the extent necessary to protect the interests of the watershed district, the managers may order that work be done under the direction of the managers and the engineer, without a contract.

Subd. 3. Assessment.  The cost of work undertaken without a contract may be assessed against benefited properties or, if the cost is not more than 25 percent of the most recent administrative ad valorem levy of the watershed district and the work is found to be of common benefit to the watershed district, funding may be raised by an ad valorem tax levy upon all taxable property within the watershed district, or both.
