Design Guidelines and Mitigation Strategies for Reducing Sedimentation of Multi‐Barrel Culverts

This transportation pool fund (TPF) project will develop guidelines for the design and mitigation for reducing sedimentation at existing and proposed culvert locations. The guidelines will be developed in a web-based program with interactive parameters that will forecast the sedimentation potential along any stream location in the U.S. prone to this process. The guiding principles and best practices for mitigating sedimentation will complete the with current hydraulic design guidelines.
