Tributary to Jacquet River

Beaver dam and eroded road.

Upstream of beaver dam

Eroded ATV trail

Jacquet-tributaire (37095)

Monday, August 15, 2011

Issue:

Beaver dam located upstream of ATV trail. Accessibility to trail blocked due to the stream running over and eroding trail. Some woody debris and tree removal noticed at the site.

Action Required:

The stream banks should be stabilized (with rip-rap rocks or with vegetation) in order to slow down erosion and reduce sedimentation in the stream.

Update

August 17 2015

Update:

Road flooding caused by old beaver dam created a large trench across the trail but is now dried up. Beaver dam is taken over by vegetation and seems healthy. Old ATV trail is barely used today but situation is very dangerous because of tall grass and lack of visibility. We marked the area with reflective tape but should have proper signage.
