RIPARIAN OWNERSHIP AND USE

Locating the side and lateral boundaries of riparian ownership is difficult!

The terra firma adjoining the water is constantly moving and shifting, but the ownership lines that extend into the water are fixed by centuries of jurisprudence. 

Did your property experience a build-up of sediment or a major allusive event? Even more, the evidence is required before finding the boundary. These subjects can be some of the most frustrating and time-consuming land disputes. 

Even more important than riparian ownership is the allocation of docking rights. There are many methods to allocate riparian use between neighbors, and choosing the correct method is critical to properly locating lines of use.
