Earth Movements and BoundariesHave you witnessed cracks in the pavement, leaning power poles, fence posts and gravestones and general, seemingly unexplained, differences in the landscape? For instance, did you know that the central US has had 154 earthquakes up to magnitude 4 in the first 6 months of just one year? Some of these likely affected boundary location. This one day seminar addresses the natural phenomena affecting land titles and boundaries.
