Boundary Lines at Lake Russell

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
Posted: 12/9/2010


There are 280 miles of common boundary shared by the Corps and neighboring property owners. The Corps has initiated an ambitious program to ensure boundary accuracy and to mark the boundary with a system that the public can understand. To assist in identifying public property lines, "witness" trees are painted with orange paint bands along the project’s boundary lines. This program also ensures that the entire boundary is re-identified every five years.

The Corps of Engineers needs your help in preventing encroachments on public land and protecting Lake Russell’s beautiful shores. If you have any questions about boundary lines, contact the Russell Project Office. A Corps Ranger can assist you regarding encroachments or any Corps matter affecting your property. The Corps also publishes a Shoreline Management Plan to provide guidance for the protection and preservation of Lake Russell. Copies are available from the Russell Project Office.

If you have questions about the location of the boundary line or shoreline management policies, contact the Richard B. Russell Lake Project Manager’s Office. A field appointment with a Corps ranger can be scheduled to answer any other questions concerning encroachments and the shoreline management program.
