To report a pipe cave in, or any other Huron County easement pipe, drain or culvert problem, during normal office hours please contact the Highway Office at 419-668-1997. The Highway Department of the Engineer's Office is responsible for maintaining Huron County public roads throughout the County, to include bridge repairs, mowing, road surfacing, ditch line maintenance, road construction, drainage installations and repairs, traffic sign maintenance and road marking. The various highway crews report to Bob Seidel, Superintendent. All crews work from our Highway Office located at 150 Jefferson Street, Norwalk, Ohio, 44857. IN AN EMERGENCY, AFTER NORMAL OFFICE HOURS, PLEASE CALL THE HURON COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE AT: 419-668-6912 DRAINAGE & DITCH LINE MAINTENANCE The Pipeline Crew is responsible for protecting county roads from the effects of water. There are 3500 small culverts in the county that cross county roads, that are smaller than ten feet in width. Most assignments are for pipe, culvert and drain repairs. Pipes installed during housing construction can separate or cave in, needing replacement. For ditch line maintenance, excess topsoil and foliage along the road shoulders is removed as required to improve road drainage. Frost heave and vegetation growing along the ditch line require the road surface to be graded periodically to an elevation that will allow storm water flow from the road edge to the side ditch. Installation of Driveway pipeline By Private Contractor All contractors must first contact the Highway Department before starting any driveway pipeline installation. A permit must be obtained first. Contractors should contact Highway Superintendent Bob Seidel or Assistant Highway Superintendent Mike Beveridge at 419-668-1997.

Installation by the Huron County Highway Department The Department installs driveway drainage pipe and an application for a permit must be applied for and an estimate of the project cost completed before installation can be done.
