§ 844. Cause for Extension of Time.
An extension of time within which to complete an application, to commence or complete construction work or apply water to full beneficial use will be granted only upon such conditions as the board determines to be in the public interest and upon a showing to the board's satisfaction that due diligence has been exercised, that failure to comply with previous time requirements has been occasioned by obstacles which could not reasonably be avoided, and that satisfactory progress will be made if an extension of time is granted. Lack of finances, occupation with other work, physical disability, and other conditions incident to the person and not to the enterprise will not generally be accepted as good cause for delay. The board may, in its discretion, require a hearing upon notice to the permittee and such other parties as the board may prescribe.
