“Jurisdiction over navigable waters belongs to the federal government rather than states or municipalities. The federal government can determine how the waters are used, by whom, and under what conditions. It also has the power to alter the waters, such as by dredging or building dams. Generally a state or private property owner who is inconvenienced by such work has no remedy against the federal government” Navigable Waters. (n.d.) West’s Encyclopedia of American Law, edition 2. (2008). En Plein Air Coffee Club will meet at 8am on Friday 3rd June 2016 along the navigable waters of the Montlake Cut. Here’s a map.
