This presentation introduces the student to the complex and confusing world of riparian water boundaries. The seminar begins with the historical development of water boundary law with regard to Rome, England, and the United States. After a foundation has been laid, the boundary between private lands and the sovereign, a boundary in continual conflict, will be discussed in depth. Next, students will apply what they have learned in group exercises by calculating and drawing water boundaries in various situations. And finally, emerging issues such as climate change and sea level rise will debated among the group.
