Details of Incident / Close Call: 

Beavers have plugged the culverts at 22.75 on the Penask Forest Service Road.  Water is flowing across the road with an overall 60 centimeter deep depression across the road with approximately 500  (+/-) gallons per minute flow rate.  No warning signs have been posted by VISA (the highway contractor who maintains the road).  There is an extreme possibility of an upset condition at this site.

Learnings and Suggestions: 

Ministry of Forests has been informed.  They have in turn contacted VISA.  I believe action will be forthcoming.
