Looking Back

Flashback Thursday:

In April of 2008, a beaver family built a large den underneath theconcrete spillway below Bream Lake (#2). Without that support, the spillway caved in and the water began to eat away at the dam itself. Over the next two months, L&L Construction brought in  tons of riprap and rebuilt the spillway. I snapped this photo of Ken Terrell, CPCA president at the time, surveying the project, which wound up costing more than $20,000. They’re amazing animals, but beaver can cause some very expensive damage.
