Early boundary law in what is now the State of Texas was based on the Spanish Civil Code, which was replaced by the Common Law of England in 1840. Over the years, statutes were passed which have impacted how water boundaries have evolved, and several cases decided in Texas courts have changed the interpretation of the law, or how it is to be applied. In most situations it is the law as it existed at the time of the original land grant that prevails, and so even though the current law may be different from what it once was, one must have an understanding of both the former and the current relevant laws if one is to apply the correct principals when re-establishing water boundaries. Explanations will be provided as to how the law has evolved, and seminal decisions of the court will be reviewed. As part of this course various references will also be made to The Professional Land Surveying Practices Act and to the current General Rules of Procedures and Practices as promulgated by the Texas Board of Professional Land Surveying, in order to satisfy the requirement for 8 CEUs with 3 hours of instruction in Act, Rules and Ethics
