1. An owner of a dam and hydroelectric plant near the confluence of navigable and nonnavigable streams, and embracing land riparian to the navigable stream, is not entitled under the Fifth Amendment to compensation from the United States for a reduction in the generating capacity of the plant which resulted from an authorized navigation improvement that raised the level of the water of the navigable stream above ordinary high water mark.
