Boundary line survey at West Point Lake Project


MOBILE, Ala. –The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, announced today that survey contractors with Maptech, Inc. have begun work to reset missing boundary monuments and properly identify sections of boundary line at West Point Lake Project. This work is part of an ongoing effort to ensure that the Project’s boundary is accurate and easily identifiable.

West Point Lake Project is responsible for the management of both public lands and easements on private lands surrounding the lake and along the Chattahoochee River from West Point Dam to Langdale Dam. The public land’s boundary is marked with red painted stripes on trees; while easement on private lands is marked with white stripes on trees.  Also, a survey monument is placed in the ground at each turning point along the boundary line.

Over the next two weeks, Maptech’s survey crews will be working along the banks of the river throughout the cities of West Point, Lanett, and Valley.  Adjacent property owners may encounter the contractors as they perform their surveys.  The contractors should be clearly identifiable, and they will be working from vehicles marked “U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Contractor.”

For questions or concerns about this work, please contact Chief Park Ranger David Scott at (706) 645-2937.
