Due to the proximity of the dam structure to the bridge and the anticipated movement of Salmon it was decided early removal would be beneficial. We are currently monitoring the location for renewed beaver activity.Lindsey Walimaki of PSE said salmon can usually swim through beaver dams. Could it be that some of the vegetative-woody debris floating from the PSE power line project contributed "building materials" for the beavers? The salmon are expected under the bridge anytime now. In this picture, the dam is "under construction" by beavers. The entire creek was eventually damed up by some very busy beavers.
Special thanks to a Water Tender for the tip.
