bb Culvert Screens

The Roads Department asks that if you see a culvert screen plugged, do not remove the screen. Please contact the Office to report it. It's easier for Staff to clear the screen than it is to clear the culvert. If you remove the screen, the beavers get right in the culvert and plug the end of it. When the screen is removed it makes the beaver's job easier and our job harder. Culverts are being checked regularly.  Thank you for your cooperation.
