Culverts have been in existence since ancient times, used by the Romans for their aqueducts and Egyptians to channel water from the Nile river. Culverts are used by a lot of businesses and residences if they have some water issues and they’re used by cities within their drainage systems to minimize the risk of floods.

Romans had ‘latrines’ composed of a wooden board with holes cut out to act as a toilet seat; below these ‘latrines’ was a giant trench with water that, when flushed, ran to a central channel to the main sewers; these then discharged to a nearby river or stream.
