County Addresses Frozen Culverts


Lac Ste. Anne County is experiencing a significant number of frozen culverts and incidents of ditch glaciation.


This issue was precipitated by arctic temperatures, large amounts of insulating snow cover, and groundwater continuing to run throughout the winter months.

Public Works employees are actively thawing culverts throughout the area on numerous roads and approaches within our borders. Thawing culverts is a very time consuming and challenging process. When the warmer weather arrives, it will take some time for the culverts to fully thaw and to handle the increases in water volume. This may result in water pooling near our infrastructure. Residents are advised to use caution while driving and slow down while crossing these affected areas.
