Beaver damage at Marshall

City of Vernon staff are dealing with beaver damage along Vernon Creek, near the Marshall Fields off-leash dog park.

A report to council says staff have identified an area with beaver activity.

The utilities department will address creek issues that pose any risk to city infrastructure.

Annual creek checks will be made prior to freshet conditions in an effort to reduce reactive responses to blockages, the report says.

Throughout the runoff season, staff perform daily checks of the creek at over 50 key locations.
