RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. -- The Army Corps of Engineers is advising landowners adjacent to public lands on Lake Dardanelle that survey crews will soon be conducting boundary line maintenance along the government boundary. 

The boundary maintenance on Lake Dardanelle will cover about 34 miles beginning at the south boundary of Old Post Road Park and continue westward along the north bank of the Arkansas River through the Illinois Bayou, Mill Creek and Arkansas Nuclear One areas, ending at Flatwood Road in London, Ark.

The maintenance is being conducted by Mendez Contracting of Plainview, Ark., under contract with the Corps.  Survey vehicles will be clearly marked with signs reading “Corps’ Contractor.”

The firm is re-establishing the existing Corps boundary line.  Work includes locating established boundary markers, clearing brush for a line of sight, and repainting the boundary line.  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, tree cutting, personal property stored on public land, and structures such as sheds, houses and decks will being documented.

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

            For more information, call the Corps’ Russellville Project Office at 479-968-5008 between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays.
