Beaver Trouble? Let Soil & Water Know.


From Soil & Water:

Flooding your fields causing crop damage or loses? Stopped up culverts and bridges, washing out roads and driveways? We need to know!

At this point, there is no cost share available in Buncombe County to assist landowners with these type of troubles. However, there is potential for us to have a program in the future. In order to do this we have to determine what level of need there is across Buncombe County. If the need is there, then we might be able to participate in the NC Beaver Management Assistance Program (BMAP) at some point in the future. So if you are having issues please give us a call, let us visit your site, take some photos, document the damage, and need. Please contact Anthony Dowdle with the Buncombe County Soil and Water Conservation District at 250-4788 or Anthony.Dowdle@buncombecounty.org.
