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 they sometimes can cause serious flooding problems for people. When this occurs a beaver pond can often be controlled at a safe level with a well-designed Pond Leveler pipe system.
The exclusion fence on the pipe intake prevents beavers from detecting the flow of water into the pipe so they do not try to block the pipe. The dam is breached and the pipe is installed through the dam at a safe level. The Pond Leveler pipe system creates a permanent leak in the dam so the beaver pond is controlled at a safe level despite the presence of beavers.
