  5. Double-click on the Type column to see the type of irregular line this is (water boundary, irregular boundary or water centreline boundary).  
    • Use the Filter by type (start typing in the type or water boundary) and it will auto-populate, or select from the dropdown list. 
    • A water boundary will require a legal description, and a warning triangle is provided to prompt you.

  6. Double-click on the Legal description for the correct legal description of the line (right bank, centreline, left bank, mean high water mark, mean high water spring, mean high water spring and/or mean high water mark, or other). 
    • Use the Filter by legal description (start typing in the legal description) and it will auto-populate, or select from the dropdown list. 
    • Select ‘Other’ to bring up a field to add another legal description.

      For irregular boundaries a legal description is not required, but you may use the ‘Other’ field to add other relevant details.    

  7. Enter a physical feature only when it is known, such as if it is shown on the adoption source, or you have surveyed the boundary for the first time and it is a description of the actual boundary feature itself such as ‘top of bank’ or ‘bottom of 1m high bank’.

    • If it is a new irregular line, there is no adoption source. 
    • As new water centreline boundaries are not allowed by the rules, an adoption source is required.
