What is River Navigability?

 

Navigability

Oregon became a state on February 14, 1859.  At that time the Federal government gave to the state all the submerged and submersible land on navigable waterways, to the line of ordinary high water.  However, the government did not tell the state which of its waterways were navigable for title purposes.
