Gull Pond (off Old Farm Road) 9/29/15
According to Town Manager (& Conservation Director) Dave Ziomek:
"My wetlands administrator worked closely with conservation and DPW staff to breach the dam. Late summer rains raised concerns about the road and water backup into basements etc. We’ve done this many times in my tenure with the Town to prevent impacts to residents, roads and property. All part of living with beavers. In these cases we seek what is called an emergency certification to breach a dam to lower water levels temporarily. Rain this week will bring level back up I’m sure."
A "beaver deceiver" will be reinstalled to protect the drainage pipe
Considering the monsoons that are now upon us, that's a pretty safe bet.
