HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. – The Army Corps of Engineers, Greers Ferry Lake Project Office advises landowners adjacent to public lands on Greers Ferry Lake that contract maintenance crews will be conducting boundary line maintenance along an 85-mile section of government boundary.
The work will start in the vicinity of Old Highway 25 recreation area in Cleburne County, head south across the dam, then west through the Heber Springs area, and finish in Choctaw Bay in Van Buren County.
Franco’s Boundary Line Maintenance, Inc., of Warren, Arkansas, will conduct the work under a Corps contract.
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 re-established at a later date by Corps personnel.
The maintenance crews will document possible encroachments onto public property such as excessive mowing, unauthorized paths, tree cutting, personal property stored on public land and structures such as sheds, houses and decks. If encroachments are found, the maintenance crew will forward the information to Corps personnel for a more detailed review.
Anyone with questions about the operations should call the Greers Ferry Project Office at 501-362-2416, or stop by the office located near the dam on Highway 25, three miles north of Heber Springs.
