There is a beaver dam causing flooding on my property. What can I do?
It is not always necessary to remove a beaver dam to discourage beaver habitation. There are other options available that may be effective.
You should be aware that removal of a beaver dam may significantly alter fish habitat which could result in a violation under the Federal Fisheries Act. If you plan to remove a beaver dam, MVCA must review your proposal to ensure there will be no harmful alteration, disruption or destruction of fish habitat. Please contact the MVCA Biologist or call (613) 253-0006.
