Jasper, Texas – U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials at Sam Rayburn Reservoir are advising landowners adjacent to public lands on Sam Rayburn Dam and Reservoir that work crews are beginning to conduct perimeter boundary line maintenance.
Approximately 38 miles of boundary maintenance will be performed in San Augustine County, east of FM 705, from Couchatana Creek to Rayburn Park.
The boundary maintenance work is being conducted by E-Tech Environmental & Safety Solutions, under contract with the Corps of Engineers. 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 contract 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 the Sam Rayburn Dam and Reservoir and much of the surrounding public land to meet the needs of human and natural communities for present and future generations.
For more information, call the Sam Rayburn Project Office at 409-384-5716 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays.
