meander line

meander line

An artificial line placed on a survey to describe the meandering course of a river or stream that forms a boundary of property. The use of a meander line indicates that the boundary is the waterway and changes if the waterway changes. If the surveyor does not use a meander line,then the boundary line is fixed and constant.
