Yesterday town employees breached a beaver dam in South Amherst
While both cute and hard working beavers can be a nightmare for property owners within proximity to their latest project. Like this project on Plum Brook, running under West Street (Rt. 116) in South Amherst.
According to Assistant Town Manager (and still Director of Conservation) Dave Ziomek, "Beavers have dammed the Plum Brook in multiple places east of Rt. 116 and the backed up water (on both public and private land) is now causing some problems."
