MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – The Army Corps of Engineers advises landowners adjacent to public lands on Norfork Lake that maintenance crews will conduct boundary line maintenance along a 30-mile section of government boundary.
The work will start in the vicinity of Howard Cove Recreation Area in Baxter County and head south to the Bidwell Point area and continue north through the Red Bank area before completion in the Udall Park area of Ozark County, Mo.
Arrowhead Starr Company of Plainview, Ark., will conduct the work under contract from 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.
Missing boundary monuments will be reestablished at a later date by Corps personnel.
The maintenance crews will document possible 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 for Corps personnel to review.
For more information, call the Mountain Home Project Office at 870-425-2700 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays.
