Culvert Problems

Back to Beaver Busting
Down in the Hunt Club's swamp, on the former Peak Road (now Beaver Pond Road, go figure), there's a two foot steel culvert
that's a favorite of the beavers. They've got a dam upstream and they alternate between repairing the damage we do to the dam
and plugging the culvert. Either one results in water on the road.
Here's a view of the west, upstream side of the culvert:

And here's the east, low water side:

To equalize the two, first have Old Stoney stick his finger in:
