Definitions for "Government lot"
Non-aliquot riparian land remnant by PLSS survey and designated upon an official GLO/BLM Township Plat.
A subdivision of a section, which is normally described by a lot number — for example, lot 5. A government lot may be regular or irregular in shape and its acreage varies from that of regular section subdivisions. Typically government lots are located along meandering bodies of water.
A subpart of a section which is not described as an aliquot part of the section, but which is designated by number, for example, Lot 3. A lot may be regular or irregular in shape, and its acreage may vary from that of regular aliquot parts. These lots frequently border water areas excluded from the PLSS.
