Riparian and Littoral (Water-Related) Boundary Surveys

Patrick C. Garner, PLS

Imagine if the boundary you surveyed was constantly moving. Ambulatory water boundaries--boundaries that are subject to change due to the nature of riparian or littoral action--present some of the most difficult and time-intensive property location issues that a land surveyor may encounter. In this course you will learn about shoreline changes, the effects of inland accretion or reliction, erosion or inundation changes and the effects of avulsion (the process of sudden detachment or addition of land), navigability--and how these actions may affect property boundaries. You will also review the basic principles of boundary law that apply to riparian surveys.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.

* If you are a registered professional land surveyor in Florida, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, Texas or Vermont, you need to take the approved courses for that specific state under the course category "Surveying & Mapping".
