|(a) Purpose. These sections are promulgated to establish reasonable minimum standards of health and sanitation applicable under conditions of mass gatherings, as defined in the Mass Gatherings Act, and to provide a means for county health officers to make methodical and uniform evaluations of the health and sanitation facilities and practices proposed by a promoter or a mass gathering. (b) Severability. If any section or provision of these rules or the application of that section or provision to any person, situation, or circumstance is for any reason adjudged invalid, the adjudication does not affect any other section or provision of these rules or the application of the adjudicated section or provision to any other person, situation, or circumstance. The Department of Health Resources declared that it would have adopted the valid portions and application of these sections without the invalid part, and to this end the provisions of these sections are
declared to be severable. (c) Conflict with other department rules. These rules and regulations are intended to be supplementary to existing statutes and other existing rules and regulations adopted by the Department of Health Resources. If a conflict between these rules and regulations and other existing rules and regulations adopted by the Department of Health Resources exists, the existing rules and regulations shall govern.
