Accessing Navigable Water: Allocation of Riparian Rights Among Landowners
Riparian rights exist only in navigable waters.
Navigable waters generally consist of streams, rivers, gulfs, and bays. And in some cases, waterways are considered to be navigable if it can be used for public reasons including recreational use. Waterfront property owners hold riparian rights to access the navigable water, as well as the right to use their upland property and the right to a waterfront view. This white paper reviews riparian rights and the public trust doctrine, and the right to wharf out to navigable water; as well as apportionment of riparian rights and determining riparian lines.
