Inter-Fluve, Inc. . 2008. Culvert Scour Assessment. 0877 1812P. San Dimas, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, San Dimas Technology and Development Center. 622 p.

This publication quantitatively analyzes the geomorphic and structure controls on channel bed and footing scour at road-stream crossings, and the effectiveness of aquatic organism passage at these crossings by comparing channel characteristics within the crossing structure to reference channel conditions not influenced by the structure. From this analysis it is possible to determine design, construction, stream, and channel conditions that contributed to the success or failure of the installation for aquatic organism passage and scour resistance. Seventeen representative case studies are presented in appendix A.

Keywords: CTIP, FHWA, fisheries, hydrology, streams
