Homeowners say beavers are wrecking Steamboat Creek

Beavers may be setting up the stage for flooding of Steamboat Creek. News 4 reports a number of beavers are creating dams, debris is backing up, and it’s changing the flow of water. Both Washoe County and NDOW say it’s not their job to trap beavers-though NDOW says it doesn’t see any immediate flooding concerns. They recommended homeowners hire a private trapper to catch the beavers.
