Cost of Culvert Failure
As America’s infrastructure ages, the risk of failures increases. Bridge corrosion, road and utility degradation are becoming an increasing concern for agencies across the United States. Culvert pipe failures under major roads throughout the United States are no different as these catastrophic failures have resulted in sinkholes, road damage and flooding.
- Action Products Marketing Corporation (AP/M) began rehabilitating manholes in 1985 with its patented PERMAFORM system for the replacement of manholes without digging and without interrupting flows.
- AP/M recognizes that not all manholes needed complete replacement. So, we developed a cast in place sealing and reinforcing system using the high strength, centrifugally cast PERMACAST specialty mortars.
- This same system was adapted for use in storm and sanitary sewer pipe from 36 inches to 120 inches in diameter.
