What is a flow device?

A flow device is built through a culvert or beaver dam to maintain an appropriate water level in the pond while allowing beavers to continue living at the site. They are also known as pond levelers or beaver deceivers. Taking into account the specific characteristics of a site is crucial for designing, building, and installing a flow device that will function effectively.
