Culvert Maintenance and Rehabilitation
A culvert is a structure that directs water around an obstruction or through an underground canal. A culvert can be a pipe, reinforced concrete, or other material that is typically embedded in dirt. A pipe culvert is a pipe that is installed in an excavated trench to carry water away. It’s the most popular type of drainage system. This style of culvert is particularly popular due to its low cost and ease of installation.
As with all things, age and usage may cause wear and tear. Replacement and rehabilitation are popular solutions to a worn culvert . However, the impact of closing off such structures to replace the culvert may lead to traffic or lack of access to your property which is why rehabilitation through lining is so popular.

Cost Effective Culvert Lining Solutions
Culvert rehabilitation using liners is one of many options for extending the life of an existing culvert. When compared to complete replacement, it’s often more cost-effective, especially if there are deep fills or trenching which would cause major traffic interruptions. Culvert lining is used to make an existing pipeline more structurally sound. It’s a less expensive and time-consuming alternative to culvert pipe replacement.
Before addressing feasible alternatives and cost-effective solutions, a full evaluation of the current culvert by our professional at Aqua Drain is required.
