Dealing with those pesky beaver dams

By Gary Sliworsky
Landowners are responsible for maintaining drains that were constructed by the province, under the Drainage Act, in previously unorganized municipalities. If there is a beaver dam located on one of these drains, then the landowner is responsible for removing it. In signing the application form for the construction of these drains with an 80% grant, the landowners had to agree to pay for any future maintenance.
