Public Notice regarding Culverts

Wednesday, May 18, 2022

Residents of Fort Smith :

For clarification on culverts:

1. If your culvert was damaged due to snow removal , the town will repair or replace the culvert at the towns cost.

2. Culverts which are otherwise damaged and/or part of an installed driveway which results in a significant negative impact on drainage for the town are the responsibility of the homeowner, as per bylaw # 936 Zoning Bylaw Section (6.7) sub section (5). " it is the sole responsibility of property owners to construct and maintain road access to their property line and the travelled portion of the street right-of-way, subject to the Town’s Engineering Standards."

3. At this time the Town is able to help reduce costs to residents as a part of our community drainage work by providing removal and installation services for identified culverts. Residents will only be responsible for the purchase of a new culvert.

4. If your culvert requires replacement, you will be contacted by Town Staff in the coming weeks.

If you have any questions, please call Town Hall at 872-8400
