HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. – The Army Corps of Engineers, Greers Ferry Lake Project Office advises landowners adjacent to public lands on Greers Ferry Lake that contract maintenance crews will be conducting boundary line maintenance along a 92-mile section of government boundary.
The work will start in the vicinity of Choctaw Bay in Van Buren County, head North to Choctaw Park Recreation area, then east through the Fairfield Bay Area and will finish up at the Hwy 225 Bridge in Cleburne County.
The maintenance work is being conducted by Barnett Resource Management, under contract with the Corps of Engineers. The work will be ongoing for several months. All workers and vehicles will have identification as a Corps contractor.
The firm is repainting the existing Corps boundary line. Work includes clearing brush along the boundary line on the public land side, and repainting boundary line posts and painting trees in between the survey markers to serve as reference points.
This is part of the Corps’ annual boundary line maintenance. Missing boundary monuments will be reestablished at a later date by Corps personnel.
Encroachments on public property such as excessive mowing, unauthorized paths and tree cutting, personal property stored on public land, and structures such as retaining walls, sheds, houses and decks will be documented.
Anyone with questions about the operations should call the Greers Ferry Project Office at 501-362-2416, or stop by the office located near the dam on Highway 25, three miles north of Heber Springs.
