Install a culvert for my driveway
As a property owner, it is your responsibility for purchasing and installing a culvert when preparing a new driveway apron: Driveway Culvert New & Maintenance Policy.
The first step is to obtain an application for a driveway opening from the engineering division. On that application, you will draw a sketch of your property and where you propose to place the driveway opening within the public right-of-way. The engineering division will obtain the size, type and length of the culvert from the City's storm water division. That information will be provided to you on the approved driveway opening application.
After approval, a $40.00 miscellaneous permit will be issued to an insured and bonded contractor prior to commencing work.
Please call the engineering division at 218/730-5200 for specifics.
