Just wondering what last weeks rain did to your hunting area. My land was fine in my hunting area, but I could not get in because the rain washed out a brand new, one week old, $4,000 culvert from the road.

Looks like you need a bigger or double that size tin horn. The good news is most of the road base is still there and the tin horn. Just going to take a bit more cash to repair that. I am lucky in that I have a place that drains away from the high spot my house sits on. The rest is a gentle slope so the water is moving through grass and brush to slow it down before it exits my place.

Not sure what your flow line is like in that ditch, but my first impression is you need to bury that CMP a bit deeper. If you can get 2' of cover over it, that's ideal and be sure to compact your fill around the pipe with a jumping jack which you can rent as that dirt mixed with that small rock will wash out every time under those conditions and in heavy rains.

I'm almost afraid to go see my place in Nacogdoches. It floods with anything over a few inches" of rain and they got that 3 weeks in a row if thurs/Fri forecast comes true.

Looks like the water washed away the loose soil that was used to backfill the culvert. Adding concrete to the entry side would help a lot, especially with more rains coming!!!

top of culvert not even below grade (red), and no-way covered over enough (yellow = 2" ??) to handle rated load.
This install is doomed in every way possible.



I had a 30' oak fall over, but it was half rotted anyway - edge of field, so no damage or worries, just plenty of firewood!

Yep, I think you get a do-over on the culvert install. I'm assuming you did it yourself?

No, I did not do it myself, I paid a company to do it.

I do not want to say who installed it because they said they will come out and redo it. If they do not, then I will let everyone know who it was.

Mr T. If you or anyone else need any recommendations for dirt work west of Fort Worth let me know. I operate a mining operation near Weatherford and have a pretty good feel for who is good, honest, and does jobs right. As others mentioned that was not done correctly at all for the price tag especially.
