Frequently Asked Questions About Culverts
The following are some frequently asked questions about culverts:

What is a culvert?
Culverts are pipes, drains, or other openings that are designed to direct flowing water. They are often located underneath bridges, roadways, and other large and solid structures. A drain or pipe is a culvert if it is less than 20 feet wide. Multiple culverts arranged side-by-side can be considered a bridge.

What are culverts used for?
Culverts are used to channel water. They can be found in trenches along roadways to keep rainwater off the pavement. They are often used to keep waterways from overflowing onto embankments during storms. Some culverts are even found in sewer systems.

What are culverts made from?
Most culverts are crafted from galvanized steel, though occasionally one may be made from PVC. This sturdy construction of galvanized steel will help protect the culvert from physical damage, and the coating of zinc over the steel keeps the tube from corroding. Oftentimes culverts are reinforced with, or even crafted from, concrete.

Who is responsible for installing and maintaining culverts?
The party responsible for culvert installation or maintenance will depend solely on the structure’s location. If the drain or pipe falls on private land, then it will probably be up to the owner to handle all tasks associated with the culvert. Culverts on public land, like the ones that are used for keeping roadways from flooding and handling sewer runoff, will usually be dealt with by the local government. City, county, or state workers will need to install and maintain the structure. All large culverts and groupings of culverts, whether public or private, need to be examined periodically to ensure their safety. This is typically done by a bridge inspector.

Culverts are put in place by engineers, architects and construction professionals. A culvert encloses a flowing body of water. This enclosure is used for drainage and sewers. Culvers are installed near storm drains and bridges. These steel or concrete culverts clear debris from a drainage system. Sometimes these culverts are made out of PVC, also known as polyvinyl chloride. If you need a culvert for commercial use, contact a culvert contractor. Find out the advantages and disadvantages of different shapes of culverts. Culverts can be pear-shaped or flat-bottomed.
