(1) These rules are to implement the administrative and management responsibilities of the Board, the Department of Environmental Protection and the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services regarding sovereignty submerged lands. Responsibility for environmental permitting of activities and water quality protection on sovereignty and other lands is vested with the Department of Environmental Protection. The responsibility for managing aquacultural activities on sovereignty lands is vested with the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. These rules are considered cumulative.

(4) Any expansion of an existing activity shall be subject to the provisions of this rule.
