Culvert, screen and outfall manual, (CIRIA C786) published by CIRIA in 2019, defines a culvert as: 'A covered channel or pipe which prevents the obstruction of a watercourse or drainage path by an artificial construction.'
It defines a canal culvert as: ‘…common in the network of canals across the UK, most of them are over 200 years old and some listed. The combination of an ageing structure and the risk of significant flooding should the culvert collapse from draining of the canal pound, can add significantly to the asset management responsibility.’
