Description: Surveyors are required to define River and Lake Boundaries on many of their Surveys. Have you been doing it properly according to Federal, State, Statute and Case Law in Alabama? We will study and review the Equal Footing Doctrine of the United States dealing with water boundaries, also explore the test for navigability of waterways.
We will also look at different court cases dealing with riparian boundaries that should help establish a guide for working with water boundaries in Alabama. The responsibility to get this correct is in the hands of you the surveyor. While many different technical experts want to get involved in setting the boundary, the results is in the hands of the Professional Surveyor as part of your boundary survey. Let’s spend some time together looking at this important subject.
