Contaminant Release from Storm Water Culvert Rehabilitation Technologies: Understanding Implications to the Environment and Long-Term Material Integrity

The primary project objectives are to determine the following: (1) The scope of the problem across departments of transportation (DOTs) (i.e., the extent of use of these technologies and the scale of their impacts to water quality); (2) The effectiveness of existing construction specifications at minimizing contaminant release from rehabilitated culverts; and (3) The degree to which the structural integrity and longevity of rehabilitated culverts are compromised by chemical leaching. Results of this project will enable DOTs to make informed decisions with regard to culvert rehabilitation selection and specification development.
