Pipes - DOT

Pipes - DOT

Pipes - DOT

How do you know if the pipes are DOT in charge or not?

I need to know if a pipe is the County or the DOT.


RE: Pipes - DOT

call the county or the DOT

RE: Pipes - DOT

Well gosh! down here we-all just dig it up and see who comes to repair it.

What kind of question is this?

If you are in this profession, shame on you!

If not, call an engineer who is!!!

RE: Pipes - DOT

If you are in Florida, look on the inside wall of the pipe for the FDOT inspector's stamp. FDOT is the only owner who uses this stamp.

RE: Pipes - DOT

A rule of thumb - if the pipe is in the DOT maintained ROW, than it is usually a DOT pipe.
CVG has the most elegant solution - call the dot or the county.
Beware, just because a pipe is in one jusisdiction, that does not mean that the other juurisdiction will not also requlate any flows through the pipe.
Here in southwest Florida, if I discharge to an FDOT culvert pipe, I also must meet city and/or county stormwater discharge regs.  Ofcourse plus the SWFWMD regs.
