The Design of Low Water Stream Crossings SreNr-Ev L. RrNc When a bridge becomes obsolete, and the road must remain open to traffic, perhaps at a new location, a low-cost alternative may be to replace it with a low water stream crossing. A low water stream crossing consists of a series of culverts that are deliberately designed so that the crossing is at a low grade and

Install stream crossings perpendicular to the direction of stream flow where possible. Fully consider the natural lateral migration pattern of the stream in the design. Avoid skews on all but the smallest streams. Access Roads. Where the stream crossing is installed as part of a roadway, size the crossing according to NRCS Conservation

Chapter 5—Low-Water Crossing Types: Pros, Cons, Idiosyncrasies, and Anecdotes 5.2 Concrete-Slab Fords Although concrete-slab fords are relatively simple and very durable, they are expensive compared to simple rock fords. The structure can be at-grade with the stream channel bottom, or raised to minimize the depth of water driven through.

3/21/2013 · This low water crossing is located in Gruene Texas and is fed and by Canyon Lake, the flow is controlled by the dam. This does make this a much safer water crossing than some of the others I have seen on here, but still, a valid water crossing.

Because temporary stream crossings are potentially hazardous, the following precautions should be taken: Construct guardrails or axle berms along the sides of the tempo-rary stream crossing.

Install the culvert crossing during low-flow periods in the stream, if Place culvert approximately in the center of the existing or expected water flow within the channel. Set the culvert(s) with a downslope grade so streamflow is not impeded and to prevent debris from clogging the pipe.

2/13/2008 · The stream we are crossing is in a FEMA regulated floodplain and drains a fairly large area. When I said low flow, that probably was not the correct term. Any time it rains the crossing will be impassable. There is rock roughly 4-5' below the streambed.

Two types of low water crossings are the unvented ford and the vented ford. Unvented fords are constructed of riprap, gabions, or concrete to provide a stream crossing without the use of pipes where streams are dry most of the year and crossing use is temporary. Water depth flow over an unvented ford should not exceed 6 inches. LOW WATER ...
