If you have stepped outside your home or business then you have likely seen a storm drain. They are found on most street corners and even in some parking lots. Also known as a catch basin, these drains remove rainwater from the street and property around it. If clogged, the water can back up and flood. That’s why it is important to call a professional to help keep it clear of debris. At A to Z Statewide Plumbing, our team has the experience and equipment to get the job done.
How Does a Storm Drain Function?
When it rains, the water runs down the street and into a storm drain, but what happens then? At that point, the water will be transported to a local waterway. This is accomplished by using a system of culverts, drainage ditches, and underground piping. It is important to know that typically this water does not go to a sewer treatment facility but instead goes directly to a pond, river, or creek.
If the storm drain doesn’t function properly due to being clogged with debris or being damaged, it will lead to flooding and possibly even property damage.
There are several parts to a storm water drain including the following:
- Storm water grate
- Storm drain covers
- Storm drain pipe
