Lyman Woods’ beaver dam notched due to flooding concerns
DOWNERS GROVE – Beavers have been busy building dams in Lyman Woods this summer, spurring a debate between the park district and a resident about whether the park district should interfere with wildlife in the woods.
Beavers build the structures to pool water as protection from predators, but heavy rains can often turn into flooding when water can’t pass through the dams.
That happened earlier this month, when dammed water flooded the soccer fields of nearby Midwestern University, according to the university’s director of operations Kevin McCormick.
