Good afternoon. The legal description would not change unless the leke was added after the property was platted. The square footage is not generally part of a legal description. So, the legal description is valid and takes precedence over any measurement subject to the water line.
The square footage on riparian property is subject to change, but for identification purposes, the legal description controls unless it is amended.
