Did you know that if you happen to have a culvert on your private property you’re responsible for maintaining it? On the other hand, if a culvert is located on municipal property the municipality is responsible for maintaining it. Either way, Jolin is your culvert inspection and cleaning specialist. So, why do you need a culvert inspection and cleaning specialist in the first place? Although the following answer may sound a bit obvious, many people who are responsible for culvert maintenance are simply not aware of it.

First and foremost, culverts can clog up pretty easily after significant rainstorms. This is due to the fact that many tree branches come down during those storms. When the excessive amount of water flows to the culvert it carries those branches along with it. The storm water also carries other items that tend to clog up culverts such as dirt, rocks, old car tires, and other types of garbage. When these items get caught in the culvert they end up clogging the pipe if not removed in a timely manner. So, what’s the big deal if your culvert becomes clogged?

We can answer that question with one word. Flooding. When culverts become clogged and blocked that storm water and snow melt runoff that is supposed to travel through the culvert ends up backing out of the culvert. When that happens the water floods the surrounding area including the street, private property and municipal property. Floods cause millions of dollars of damage across New England on a yearly basis. In many cases the flooding can be completely avoided. Blocked and clogged culverts are the perfect example of this.

If you own or manage property that contains a culvert simply remember the fact that Jolin is your culvert inspection and cleaning specialist. All it takes is a phone call or email in order to schedule maintenance. We will come down to the property with all of the proper equipment to both inspect and clean your culvert.

The good news is that Jolin is your culvert inspection and cleaning specialist and we will help you avoid a flood. Furthermore, you should hire a culvert inspection and cleaning specialist at minimum of twice per year.
