Two great publications for Maine Surveyors are:

"Sea and Shore Boundaries" by Aaron L. Shalowitz, LL.M.  of the US Coast and Geodetic Survey.1964 in two volumes, 1169 pages total.  This is probably the best work ever published on this subject!


NATIONAL WATER COMMISSION - "A Summary Digest of State Water Laws" by Richard L. Dewsnut & Dallin W. Jensen, Editors and Robert W. Swenson, Associate Editor. Published in 1973, 826 pages.

For anyone surveying on salt water or fresh water boundaries, these two books should definitely be in your library.

  • Utilized the Shalowitz docs a number of years ago while retracing "pre fill" coastal boundaries for Massachusetts Coastal Zone Management project determining Chapter 91 jurisdictional boundaries.  Great references for those interested in how the early C&GS surveys were performed.
