Culvert pipes are typically used in culverts in order to divert water away from or under a structure. They are buried underground and are usually covered by soil. Culvert pipes are typically made of galvanized steel, plastic, concrete or high-density polyethylene. They also come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including round, elliptical, and box style.
