What is a Culvert?
Culvert issues occur frequently in all urban and rural environments.
A culvert is a structure that allows water to flow under a road, railroad, trail, or similar obstruction from one side to the other side. Typically embedded so as to be surrounded by soil, a culvert may be made from a pipe, reinforced concrete or other material.
Where do you go to report Culvert issues?
To avoid problems such as flooding, freezing road surfaces, road accidents due to culvert blockage or subsidence, it’s important to get culvert issues corrected as soon as possible. If the issue is with a public culvert (e.g. roadway, driveway, sidewalk), call your local public service provider or, more conveniently, use our free service to have the issue redirected to the right person in the right department, in the right agency – click the green “MAKE YOUR REQUEST” button on this page.
