Welborn Sales, a Contech Engineered Solutions distributor, presented Brown County of Kansas with the option of replacing an existing concrete box culvert that was in poor condition with a one-piece culvert complete with prefabricated headwall. After considering a few different options, the County determined that an Aluminized (ALT2) HEL-COR® 5x1 CMP solution with a prefabricated headwall would be an ideal solution.

There were several factors that ultimately lead to this decision and the selection of an ALT2 HEL-COR® culvert. First, Contech's 5x1 HEL-COR and attached headwall offered a solution that would resolve known scour issues at the site while meeting the county's stringent budget requirements. Secondly, the headwall design allowed the county to create and directly attach wingwalls made of Contech Metric Sheeting to the headwall providing additional benefits and ease of installation. Contech's custom manufacturing and flexible headwall design assistance offered the county precisely what it needed for a specific site condition. Lastly, manufacturing the pipe and headwall as a unified structure facilitated quick installation by county forces. 

Ultimately, Brown County was extremely pleased with the results. A total of only 120 man hours were required for the complete installation.
