NEWS RELEASE:  Corps of Engineers Boundary Refurbishment Survey

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at West Point Project announced today that the project will begin a refurbishment survey of the Government property line around the reservoir on Monday, August 1, 2022.

The contractor, Seaside Engineering and Surveying, will be surveying various sections of the West Point Project’s boundary line. Many subdivisions, neighborhoods, and major roads adjacent to public land around lake may be affected by this survey contract. Adjacent property owners may see crews working or walking on the public land behind their homes and/or properties. The work is scheduled to occur over the next 30 days. The Corps would like to make the public aware of this work so that local residents are not alarmed by their presence.

    In addition, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Park Rangers will be inspecting portions of the property line during the coming months as the survey contract is conducted. Park Rangers will be in uniform.  The purpose of these inspections is for quality assurance purposes.

 The Government property line is easily recognized by two red, horizontal stripes painted on trees on either side of the line when it is straight, and three stripes painted on trees where the line turns.  The property line extends over 330 miles around West Point Project, encompassing over 55,000 acres of publicly owned land and water.  The entire extent of the line is repainted every five years to ensure that it is easily identifiable.  For more information about this or any other matter regarding West Point Project, please contact the Project Management Office at 706-645-2937.
