Joseph Grabas Presents Owning the River: Water Rights and Boundaries

Share:


Thursday December 1, 2022
7:00 PM

The ability to own land in fee without obligation to feudal lords and kings was one of the driving forces behind the settlement and development of the original thirteen colonies. In 1609, the Wild West started at the New Jersey shoreline. To escape the tenancies and servitudes of the Old World, Europeans came to American shores for the promise of land and self-determination.

Ownership of the water and the land under it would forge the fates of our forebearers. Mr. Grabas will discuss water rights and boundaries along the Delaware River Valley, beginning with the earliest deeds through to the most recent conflicts (New Jersey v. Delaware, 552 U.S. 597 (2008)) and the inherent right of the sovereign to control lands now or formerly flowed by the tide. Free preregistration: https://bit.ly/grabasriver
