Mean High Water Line
Posted by rbcslim
I am in North Carolina trying to establish the boundaries of an upland owner who adjoins a navigable, tidal river. My research has lead me to the facts that the mean high water line is the boundary between my client and the public(state) ownership of the river, and that this mean high water line is determined by the arithmetic mean of the high water heights observed or a 18.6 year epoch. The recorded previous survey of the land runs the lines well out into the rivers water and is well past the apparent visible high water mark which is marked by the base of a 60' cliff where the beach ends and the vegetation begins to grow up the cliff.
