Introduction Degraded cast-in-place structures eventually need to be replaced but the costs associated with clear-span structures may not be affordable to all clients. Background The Township of Melancthon Township is responsible for numerous concrete structures that convey headwaters, which support sensitive cold-water species such as Brook trout that are protected and regulated under the Fisheries Act, governed by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans DFO. A structure replacement was required on a headwater stream of the Pine River that supports all life stages of Brook Trout, with numerous areas of groundwater input critical habitat.
A culvert is a structure that allows water to flow under a road, railroad, trail, or similar obstruction from one side to the other. Typically embedded so as to be surrounded by soil, a culvert may be made from a pipe , reinforced concrete or other material. In the United Kingdom , the word can also be used for a longer artificially buried watercourse. Culverts are commonly used both as cross-drains to relieve drainage of ditches at the roadside, and to pass water under a road at natural drainage and stream crossings. A culvert may be a bridge-like structure designed to allow vehicle or pedestrian traffic to cross over the waterway while allowing adequate passage for the water.
