That means cutting grass and other vegetation. No work can be performed on government property without prior written approval from the Corps.
Beaver park rangers patrol the shoreline for unauthorized activities. In some cases, citations could require an appearance before a federal magistrate and jeopardize existing permits or licenses associated with boat docks, electric power lines and vegetation modification.
The government property line is marked around the lake with white metal fence posts set near round brass survey markers placed at ground level. It runs straight between consecutive survey markers and its presence is indicated by white lines painted on trees. The trees, not usually on the line, just indicate that the line passes near.
For more information about use of government property, call the Beaver Project Office at 479-636-1210, ext. 1706 or stop by the office located at 2260 North Second Street, Rogers, Ark.
