What is a Culvert?
Culverts allow water to safely pass under your gravel driveway or road without damaging the roadway. By placing corrugated metal or plastic tubing along the under ground section of the waterway you can safely drive across the roadway without obstructing the waterway or damaging the road. The corrugated material provides a stronger strength to weight ratio then a smooth pipe, and slows the speed of flowing water as well as helps to clear debris.
Installing a Culvert
Not all culverts are created equally, you require the correct size and positioning for your culvert to be effective. There are many different factors to consider when installing a culvert, such as water levels (stream depth, low and peak flow, etc.), the distance that the stream must travel underground, the weight requirements for the road and much more.
