Boundary line maintenance to begin on Beaver Lake

ROGERS, Ark. --

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is advising landowners adjacent to public lands on Beaver Lake that contract work crews are currently conducting boundary line maintenance around Beaver Lake.

Contract crews will perform boundary maintenance on 360 miles of Beaver Lake's boundary through June 2021. The contractor is currently working in Ventris Hollow. The location of the contractor will be updated on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District website at https://www.swl.usace.army.mil/Missions/Recreation/Lakes/Beaver-Lake/.

The workers are re-marking the existing Corps' perimeter. Work includes exposing survey monuments, clearing brush along the perimeter on the public land side, replacing and painting perimeter posts, and painting trees in the vicinity of the perimeter to serve as reference markers to the perimeter. Missing survey monuments will be reestablished at a later date by Corps land surveyors.

Encroachments on public property such as excessive mowing, 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 you can call the Beaver Lake Duty Ranger at 501-340-1710 during normal business hours.
