AGUSTIN V. IAC
187 SCRA 218
Cagayan River separates Solana on the west and Tuguegarao on the east. Agustin was the owner of the eastern lot while the western lot was owned by the private respondent. Through the years, the Cagayan river eroded the eastern portion depositing the alluvion to the western portion. After a big flood, the river cut through the lot of private respondent, whose lands were transferred to the eastern lot. The private respondent tried to cultivate but they were stopped by the men of Agustin.
Accretion belongs to the riparian owners upon whose lands the alluvial deposits were made.
