Program: How to Address Sovereignty Lands Issues in Florida

Minnesota boasts on its license plate that it is the “Land of 10,000 Lakes,” but that is nothing for Florida, which has over 30,000 lakes, one ocean, one gulf, numerous streams, rivers, ponds and swamps.  Florida is more wet than dry.  With all of this water, how is one to determine if the state has interest in the land?  This presentation reviews the history and importance of water issues in Florida.  As Florida entered the union, it entered under the “equal footing doctrine.’  The equal footing doctrine and the Swamp and Overflow Lands Act gave the state title to more two thirds of the state.  The program includes:

  • A detailed discussion of how to determine if sovereignty lands issues are present
  • Review how to access and review LABINS and other resources
  • Common water exceptions used in Florida and how and why they should be used
