This informative course has been redesigned for 2018! Come listen to a panel of experts as they provide an overview of the latest changes, emerging issues and challenges with regard to DEP’s proprietary authority over state-owed submerged lands. The course includes a comprehensive update on which lands are considered “sovereign”; the latest trends in determining the boundary between public and private lands in the permitting process; recent enforcement actions on lands where DEP believes the submerged lands are sovereign and where the upland landowner also claims ownership of the same submerged lands; recent developments regarding balancing the rights of riparian waterfront owners versus the public interest consideration in state-owned submerged land; and a discussion of special permit conditions, considerations and procedure and practices in requesting authorization to use sovereign submerged land for private uses.  Course designed for extensive audience participation.
