MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – The Army Corps of Engineers is advising landowners adjacent to public lands on Bull Shoals Lake that work crews are conducting additional boundary line maintenance.

In addition to the recent 250 miles of boundary line maintenance, an additional 80-mile section of maintenance will be conducted in the vicinity of Theodosia, Ozark County, Missouri and heading south, ending in Marion County, Arkansas, adjacent to Marion County Road 163, which is located due north of Jones Point Wildlife Management Area.

The maintenance work is being conducted by Express Forestry Services, LLC of Leslie, Arkansas, 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 reestablishing the existing Corps boundary line. Work includes locating established boundary markers, clearing brush along the boundary line on the public land side, replacing and repainting boundary line posts and painting trees in between the survey markers to serve as reference points.

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 sheds, houses and decks will be documented. 

The Corps manages Bull Shoals Lake and the surrounding public lands in accordance with Title 36, Code of Federal Regulation 327 to meet the needs of human and natural communities for present and future generations.

For more information, call the Mountain Home Project Office at 870-425-2700 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday thru Friday.
