I took this photo of the beaver dam that is to be breached per the emergency order requested by the MASS DOT from the Town of Medfield’s Conservation Commission. That application and emergency order are in the packet of meeting materials. The dam was built by the beavers where a culvert goes under the North South Framingham to Walpole RR line, between the tracks and McCarthy Park, ponding water where none had before and putting the railbed at risk per MASS DOT. I accompanied Conservation Commissioner Deborah Bero on her site walk before the emergency order issued.
The beavers had previously dammed the other side of the RR tracks, between the RR tracks and Rte. 27, causing large numbers of trees along Rte. 27 to die, and great blue heron to start nesting in the dead trees this past year. However, that former beaver pond activity area between the RR tracks and Rte. 27 is now no longer flooded by the beavers, so the beavers appear to have moved to the other side of the tracks.
