At least 20 or more years ago, I knew a town road supervisor (in a very rural area) that had a very effective method of getting rid of beaver dams in his culverts... he used dynamite... cleared out both the dam and the beaver..... funny how times have changed. Now it takes a whole fire department and two highway crews.

Those pesky little creatures better keep a close eye on that or they'll be back hard to work on repairs.
