|[piping and/or] culverting|
The exact answer would depend on further context. "Piping" is OK, but in this case "culverting" is probably even better because the text refers to existing watercourses. Depending on the source, the definition of "culvert" ranges from, generally, any kind of a pipe to carry runoff underground to, specifically, a pipe going under a road or other structure (maybe from a glossary on road-building?). If further context shows that the entire underground stormwater system is included, then "piping" would need to be added. A culvert is not the same thing a sewer, which carries wastewater from homes, as opposed to stormwater. See examples and web definitions below.

A culvert is another word for a stormwater pipe which is not connected up to the main stormwater system. There are generally two types of culverts - vehicle crossing culverts which are a short length of pipe running under driveways (used on roads that do not have kerb and channeling); and road crossing culverts which are pipe systems running under the road which usually take water from a stream from one side of the road to the other (under the road).
A buried pipe that allows flows to pass under a road.
A conduit used for the passage of surface water under a road or other embankment.
A pipe or concrete box structure that conveys flow from open channels, swales, or ditches under a roadway, driveway, fill soil, or surface structure.
