Corrugated HDPE pipe connections


I am running new storm water drain lines from our house and we have to connect to a 6" line the township ran from our yard to the drain basin in the road... I am running 4" corrugated pipe from all the downspouts to one main line that is to run into this line (this is how the town wants it, no pipes laying in yard, all must terminate into the town storm water system)....

question is how do I get from 4" into the 6" pipe... our local supply shops dont sell 6" t's that have a 4" connection... and it almost seems like one that the town did was just a hole drilled in and the pipe placed in it...

how are you supose to interconnect into a 6" HDPE corrugated pipe from a 4" line? thanks

6" x 4" bushing with a short piece of 4" off the bushing

Use a "Y" instead of a T
