Rolling Hills Road Culvert Replacement
Awarded 2009; Completed 2010
In the fall of 2009, heavy rains washed out numerous county-road culverts in Peach County, GA. TPE provided a HEC RAS hydrology/hydraulics study to determine the size and orientation of a replacement culvert pipe. The goal of the project was to replace the culvert with a suitably sized structure in a drainage basin of approximately one square mile.
The culvert was sized to protect the road and oriented to pass water safely by the downstream residence. Downstream channel modifications were incorporated into the design to further protect the downstream properties. The Rolling Hills Road Culvert replacement project was partially funded by FEMA. HMW assisted Peach County with its negotiations with FEMA, who originally wanted a smaller pipe installed.
