Example text

C. 1301(a)(2). If tidal waters included discrete bodies of nonnavigable water, this definition would be selfcontradictory. Thus it appears that Congress understood “tidal waters” as referring to the boundaries of the navigable ocean. ” 99 Cong. Rec. 2632 (1953). Although the Submerged Lands Act is not at issue in this case, it is evidence of Congress’s interpretation of the public trust doctrine, and that interpretation is entitled to consideration. In sum, the purpose of the public trust, the analogy to federal admiralty jurisdiction, and the legislative history of the Submerged Lands Act all indicate that the States hold title only to lands underlying navigable waters.

Section 2 of the Oregon Admission Act provides: “All the navigable waters of said State, shall be common highways and forever free . . ” This language, which is taken from the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 and is found in the admission acts of a number of the states, was construed by the United States Supreme Court in Huse v. S. 543 (1886). In that case, the state of Illinois had constructed a lock and dam on the Illinois River and charged a toll for the passage of vessels through the lock. This charge was held not to violate the terms of the Ordinance.

Leases may, therefore, be required of those parties who claim riparian status and who have exercised in the past the privileges accompanying that status.
