Driveway Culvert Policy
Policy Manual - Section II - SubsectionVII
In an effort to create a consistent Culvert Policy that would treat all residents fairly, the Town has adopted the following guidelines to deal with placement of new culverts, damaged, rusted and raised culverts:
1. All new developments that require culverts; such as driveways for residential and commercial properties will be the sole responsibility of the property owner. Including sidewalk repairs and other damages that may occur. The Town reserves the right to carry out these repairs and charge back the full amount to the property owner.
2. If there is damage caused to a culvert by the Town, the Town will assume responsibility to repair the culvert.
3. If a culvert is raised or sunk due to freeze and thaw and is impacting the water flow the Town will carry out repairs to drop or raise the culvert but will not purchase a new culvert. As well, if pavement needs to be cut and removed, it will be the responsibility of the property owner for replacement and maintenance of the area and driveway.
4. In the event that a culvert needs to be replaced, the property owner is responsible for purchase of the culvert and replacement of asphalt if necessary. The Town will carry out culvert replacement (labour & equipment only), at no cost to the owner.
The Town of St. Anthony adopted its Culvert Policy on 21st day, 10th month, 2008.
