ROGERS, Ark. -- The Army Corps of Engineers is advising landowners adjacent to public land on Beaver Lake that work crews will be conducting perimeter maintenance on the northern section of Beaver Lake starting at the east side of Fords Creek, working north to the dam, then continuing on into the North Clifty area.

The work will be ongoing for the next six months.  Adjacent landowners will likely see contractors working along the public land’s perimeter to their property.

Devereux and Associates, LLC., of Bella Vista, Ark. will conduct the work under contract with the Corps.  All workers and vehicles will have identification as a Corps contractor.

The firm is re-marking the existing Corps perimeter.  Work includes exposing survey monuments, clearing brush along the perimeter on the public land side, replacing and painting perimeter posts, and painting trees in the vicinity of the perimeter to serve as reference markers to the perimeter.  Missing survey monuments will be reestablished at a later date by Corps land surveyors.

Excessive mowing, unauthorized paths and tree cutting, personal property stored on public land and structures such as sheds, houses and decks will be documented.

The Corps manages Beaver Lake and the surrounding public lands to meet the needs of human and natural communities for present and future generations.

The Beaver Project Office will be keeping track of the contractor’s location, so if you have any questions related to the progress of the work, please feel free to contact Chief Park Ranger Michael Hurley at 479-636-1210, ext. 1716, weekdays between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
