Water Boundaries II – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is TH Investments v. Kirby Inland Marine, Texas Court of Appeals 2007. This case covers many of the basic doctrines of water boundaries, including riparian and littoral rights, navigability, meander lines, accretion, avulsion, reliction, erosion, and subsidence. The primary discussion focuses on the ambulatory nature of water boundaries. This is an important concept to understand when dealing with the location of water boundaries. They are subject to movement over time. How and when they move is discussed in detail, along with how and when the boundary lines move with them and when they do not.
