Dr. Richard Elgin, former faculty member of civil, architectural and environmental engineering, has published a book, “Riparian Boundaries for Missouri: A Guide to Inland Nontidal Riparian and Littoral Boundaries.” This book joins five others by Elgin on surveying subjects.

“I am particularly proud of this book because it addresses the complex river boundary that, unlike its upland brethren, moves. Much of the lex aquae for riparian and littoral boundaries is state-specific and hence this book focuses on Missouri,” Elgin says.

The book was partially funded by Missouri’s Department of Agriculture, Land Survey Program and the Missouri Society of Professional Surveyors.
