MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mountain Home Project Office is advising landowners adjacent to public lands around Bull Shoals Lake that contract maintenance crews will be conducting boundary line maintenance along a 170-mile section of government boundary.

The work will start in the vicinity of Theodosia in Ozark County, Missouri adjacent to Marion County Road 163, located due north of Jones Point Wildlife Management Area and head west into Taney County, Missouri.

The maintenance work is being conducted by Express Forestry Service, LLC under contract from USACE. The contractor is reestablishing the existing USACE boundary line. Work includes locating survey monuments, clearing brush along the boundary line on the public land side, replacing and painting boundary line posts and painting trees in between the survey monuments to serve as reference points. The public may see maintenance crews working around their neighborhoods and walking on the public land behind their homes or properties.  

Missing boundary monuments will be reestablished at a later date by USACE officials. Encroachments and trespasses onto public property will be documented.

These include mowing, unauthorized paths, tree cutting, personal property stored on public land and structures such as sheds, houses and decks for USACE officials to review.

The Mountain Home Project Office manages Bull Shoals and Norfork Lakes as well as the surrounding public lands to meet the needs of human and natural communities for present and future generations.
