A. All permits and leases for encroachments shall be conditioned upon the applicant's or lessee's holding the state and office harmless for all acts or omissions of any person or agent in the construction and maintenance of the encroachment though the lease or permit subsequently expires or is revoked; constructing, creating, and maintaining the encroachment in a state of repair or upkeep and condition has to reasonably conform to criteria and standards adopted to protect the public interest. Permits issued pursuant to these provisions shall be effective for a period not to exceed two years from the date of issuance and shall thereupon expire; all work remaining or any additional work may be completed only upon application in the manner provided by this Chapter. No permit or lease shall be issued unless first approved by the governing authority of the parish in which the encroachment is located, the attorney general, and such other parochial or state agencies, as may have jurisdiction in the premises.
B. Any lease or permit granted pursuant to the provisions of this Chapter shall be subordinate to prior servitudes, permits, and leases and to any future oil, gas, and mineral lease and shall be subject to the laws of the state concerning wildlife and to the rules, regulations, and orders authorized by such laws. Without consent of the lessee, or permittee, the state or agency having authority may grant servitudes and other leases affecting the property which do not interfere unreasonably and permanently with the use of the property by the lessee.
