Municipal Culvert Assessment - Berlin

Date: 6/20/2019 8:00 AM - 6/20/2019 3:00 PM

Location: Berlin Town Hall
23 Linden Street

Berlin, Massachusetts





Course Description

Do you know the location and condition of all the culverts in your municipality? Are they free flowing, half blocked, completely blocked, structurally sound, deteriorated, straight, crooked or a combination of all of these conditions? Have you created an annual budget for culvert repair and replacement based on a condition assessment?

This workshop will show you how to collect and catalog the information to identify which crossings provide a safe unrestricted flow through the structure and the traveling public over the structure and which crossings are a risk now or in the near future to aquatic, motor vehicle and pedestrian passage. Please wear sturdy boots and bring PPE such as safety vest, safety glasses and work gloves.

Target Audience

The Culvert Condition Assessment Manual and Culvert Assessment Form are designed to be used by any member of a municipal public works department. Feel free to send the entire department or just one member who can then teach the others.

Registration 7:30 am, Class begins at 8:00 am
