PLAINVIEW, Ark. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Nimrod-Blue Mountain Project Office is advising landowners adjacent to public lands around Nimrod and Blue Mountain lakes that contract maintenance crews will be conducting boundary line maintenance on a 20-mile section of government boundary.
The work is scheduled to begin May 10. The contractor will be working on sections of the USACE boundary line adjacent to the City of Plainview and along State Highway 60 on Nimrod Lake and on the west end of Blue Mountain Lake near the City of Booneville. The public may see maintenance crews working around their neighborhoods and walking on the public land behind their homes or properties. Residents may also notice uniformed USACE park rangers inspecting portions of the boundary line during the coming months as the contract maintenance work is performed.
Workers are re-marking the existing USACE boundary line. Work includes exposing survey monuments, clearing brush along the perimeter on the public land side, replacing and painting perimeter witness posts and painting trees in the vicinity of the perimeter to serve as reference markers to the boundary line.
USACE manages Nimrod and Blue Mountain lakes as well as the surrounding public lands to meet the needs of human and natural communities for present and future generations.
