Infilling a Ditch

The installation of a professionally engineered culvert in a roadside ditch is permitted within the town right-of-way in front of your property.  The homeowner is responsible to pay all costs for the Engineer, the permit, the material, the installation, and the restoration (i.e. stone, shouldering etc.). The Town inspects the work for compliance. Only contractors Licensed with the Town can work on the Town Road Allowance. 

Driveway Culvert and Ditch Infill Repairs

If the existing culvert in your driveway or ditch requires repair or replacement, the homeowner is required to purchase the new culvert or pipe. The Public Works Department will install. Please note this does not include driveway or landscape restoration or headwall construction. The town will only supply and install gabion stone end treatments.
