Roger McEowen: Watercourse Boundaries

November 30, 2016

NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFD-TV) RFD-TV’s Market Day Report hosts a weekly interview with Roger McEowen, Professor of Agricultural Law and Taxation at the Washburn University School of Law, and an affiliate with the Kansas Farm Bureau.

The topic of this week’s interview: from last year’s drought in California, to water issues looming in the Great Plains, water issues play a significant role in agriculture. Another water-related issue of concern to farmers is watercourse boundaries. How exactly is a watercourse boundary defined? How does the watercourse move, and how can ag landowners adjacent to a watercourse be effected? How can a watercourse being navigable or non-navigable impact the location of the new boundary? What issues can arise when a watercourse forms the boundary? Professor McEowen gives his answers to these and other questions in the video above.
