County Materials’ Concrete Box Culverts Prove Ideal for Hydro Facility

County Materials’ Precast Concrete Box Culverts are an effective solution for water diversion projects, such as underground hydro plants. The sections’ larger size provides adequate flow capacity in challenging environments. Concrete box culverts are inherently strong and can exceed a service life of 100 years. County Materials’ Concrete Box Culverts are delivered on site ready for installation, providing time and cost savings. 

After the University of Notre Dame began a sustainable initiative on campus, they began constructing a hydroelectric generation facility. This facility would offset 9,700 tons of carbon dioxide annually and generate about seven percent of the university’s electricity.  

Project leaders sought a durable product with an efficient production and delivery process. County Materials’ Concrete Box Culverts proved ideal for this hydroelectric facility. Each precast component was manufactured to specifications, allowing for the tight construction schedule to be met.
