Vermont v. New Hampshire

No. 2, original

Decree entered January 8, 1934

290 U.S. 579

Syllabus

Decree adjudging the boundary between the states of Vermont and New Hampshire to be the low water mark on the west side of the Connecticut River and directing that the line be definitely located and marked on the ground at points which have been agreed upon in a stipulation of the parties. This work is to be done by a special commissioner, appointed by the decree and instructed thereby as to his duties, including the taking, if necessary, and filing of evidence. Directions are given as to the making, filing and service of his report, and hearing of objections. The compensation and expenses of the commissioner, as approved by the Court, with incidental expenses, are to be paid equally by the two states, as also are the costs of the suit. Either party may apply in the future for location and marking of additional points, or to have points relocated and marked "where the boundary has been affected by erosion or accretion."

This Decree is made pursuant to the opinion reported in 289 U. S. 289 U.S. 593.
