Now that you feel confident with the material in Section 1 of this
lesson, nonriparian or broken boundary adjustments, we'll expand
this further to include grant boundaries or grant line boundaries.
Our objective in this section is to understand the techniques used
to proportionately resurvey these areas.
In many states there are irregular grants and reservation boundaries
that were established prior to the extension of the public lands
subdivisional surveys. The township and section lines, if they intersect
at such areas, then became closing lines and are useful in reestablishing
any lost corners surrounding the grant area.
