Corps to conduct boundary line maintenance on area lakes

The Army Corps of Engineers is advising landowners adjacent to public lands on Bull Shoals and Norfork lakes that work crews will be conducting boundary line maintenance for the next several months.

On Lake Norfork, the 60-mile section of maintenance will begin in the vicinity of Calamity Beach in northern Baxter County and head south to the Pigeon Creek Recreation Area on the western bank.

On Bull Shoals Lake, 180-mile section of government boundary maintenance will begin near Diamond City, heading south through East Sugarloaf Arm Creek and ending in the Bull Shoals Dam area.

The work is being conducted by Express Forestry Services, LLC of Leslie under contract with the Corps of Engineers. All workers and vehicles will have identification as a Corps contractor.

The firm is reestablishing the existing Corps boundary line. Work includes locating established boundary markers, clearing brush along the boundary line on the public land side, replacing and repainting boundary line posts and painting trees in between the survey markers to serve as reference points.

Encroachments on public property such as excessive mowing, unauthorized paths and tree cutting, personal property stored on public land and structures will be documented.
