Control Beaver Dam Flooding
Beavers build dams from sticks, rocks and mud to create ponds for their own safety and convenience as they are well adapted to water. These dams have immense ecological benefits, but sometimes serious flooding problems can occur for people. Fortunately, most beaver ponds can be safely controlled at a safe size with a well-designed Pond Leveler pipe. Where feasible, Pond Leveler pipes are a superior option to beaver trapping.
The Pond Leveler has an exclusion fence on the pipe inlet to prevent beavers from detecting the flow of water into the pipe. Being unable to feel or hear any water flow into the pipe the beavers leave the inlet of the pipe alone. The highest point of the pipe is its outlet in the beaver dam. The height of the pipe outlet controls the pond level. The Pond Leveler pipe creates a permanent leak in the dam so the beaver pond is controlled at a safe level despite the presence of beavers.
