MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – The Army Corps of Engineers is advising landowners adjacent to public lands on Bull Shoals Lake that work crews will soon conduct boundary line maintenance along a 20-mile section starting north of Tucker Hollow Park and along the south and north banks of Bear Creek to the Missouri state line.
Wilco Contracting, Inc. of Yellville, Ark. will conduct the work under contract with the Corps. All workers and vehicles will have identification as a Corps contractor.
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. Missing boundary monuments will be reestablished at a later date by Corps personnel.
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 will be documented.
The Corps manages Bull Shoals Lake and the surrounding public lands to meet the needs of human and natural communities for present and future generations.
For more information, call the Mountain Home Project Office at 870-425-2700 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays.
