Watercourse - Rights and Responsibilities
A watercourse is any natural or artificial channel above or below ground through which water flows, such as a river, brook, beck, ditch, mill stream or culvert (excluding public sewers).
If you own land above or with a watercourse running through it you are a 'riparian owner' and have responsibilities. You may also have 'riparian owner' responsibilities if your land boundary is next to a watercourse.
