Creating flood waters from beaver dams, can create dangerous hazards to a property and person. Case law reveals that it is the landowner’s obligation to ensure water retained on their property does not negatively impact adjacent properties and land, including public roadways. The Municipality respectfully requests that all landowners monitor, maintain and/or remove beaver and/or dams on their properties to keep water to levels maintained. This could significantly limit your risk of liability for personal injury and property damage that could result from breach of beaver dams. If you are an absentee landowner, it may be beneficial to have another individual monitor your property in your absence to deal with potential situations that could reduce liability risks. Please contact the Municipal Office for a list of local trappers that you can consult for assistance.
