    Sec. 805-240. Sale of land affected by federal emergency conservation work; work on privately owned land.
    (a) The Department has the power and authority for and on behalf of the State to make contractual agreements with the federal government providing that if, as a result of the emergency conservation work done by the federal government on State, county, and municipally owned land in Illinois under the provisions of a federal act entitled "An Act for the relief of unemployment through the performance of useful public work, and for other purposes", enacted by the 73rd Congress, the State derives a direct profit from the sale of that land or its products, then the proceeds will be divided equally between the State of Illinois and the federal government until the State shall have paid for the work done at the rate of $1.00 per man per day for the time spent on the work or projects, subject to a maximum of $3.00 per acre.
    The Department's agreements with the U.S. Government may include general indemnification provisions as required by federal statutes for nonfederal sponsorship of a federally authorized project.
    (b) The Department may also assume responsibility for the maintenance of work done on privately owned land either by the owners of the land or otherwise and may by contract with the owners reserve the right to remove any structures or other things of removable value resulting from the work, including products of trees planted, the removal to be without compensation to the landowner.
