FORT WORTH, Texas –U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ representatives at Sam Rayburn Reservoir announce that perimeter boundary line maintenance along portions of boundary has begun.

Maintenance will be performed on about 31 miles of boundary between Jackson Hill and Rayburn Parks and is expected to be completed by year’s end.

The work is being done by Etech Environmental & Safety Solutions Inc. All workers will have USACE contractor identification. The firm is re-marking the existing 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 between the survey monuments to serve as reference points. Missing boundary monuments will be re-established at a later date by future contractors.

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 for follow-up discussions with Corps officials.

The Corps manages Lake Sam Rayburn and much of the surrounding public land to meet community and environmental needs for present and future generations. For more information, call the Lake Sam Rayburn project office at (409) 384-5716.
