Description

The Clemson Beaver Pond Leveler was developed to meet two goals. The need to suppress the problem of flooding agricultural and timberlands was paramount. The second goal was to maintain or improve some of the benefits derived from beaver ponds and associated plant communities while preventing extensive flood damage. The pond leveler device should help reduce flooding, manipulate pond levels, solve road culvert plugging problems, and prevent filling of standpipes and culverts used as water control structures in fish ponds.
