The commission shall adopt and promulgate rules and regulations for the administration of the Small Watersheds Flood Control Fund. The commission may allocate to any local organization in this state, from the Small Watersheds Flood Control Fund, such sum or sums as in the judgment of the commission may be necessary to enable such local organization to acquire real property or easements needed to permit the local organizations to install upstream flood control or watershed protection and flood prevention structures on rivers, tributaries, streams, or watersheds thereof, including cooperative projects between the local organization and the United States. When any property or easement has been acquired by the use of any funds allocated under this section and the property is thereafter sold or leased, it shall be the duty of the local organization to remit to the department a pro rata share of the proceeds of such sale or lease equal to the percentage of total state funds involved.
