ROGERS, Ark., -- The Army Corps of Engineers is advising landowners adjacent to public lands on Beaver Lake that maintenance crews will soon conduct boundary line maintenance along the east bank of the White River Arm beginning at Blue Springs, working south towards Goshen. They will also be working the middle lake areas of Rivercliff, Shaddox Hollow, Coppermine, and Rambo.
Lawns, Limbs, and Landscaping of Hot Springs, Ark. will conduct the work under contract with the Corps.
The firm is re-marking the existing Corps 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. All workers and vehicles will have identification.
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 are being documented.
The Corps manages Beaver Lake and the surrounding public lands to meet the needs of human and natural communities for present and future generations.
For more information, call Chief Ranger Jared Trammell at 479- 636-1210, extension 1708, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. weekdays.
