Does Your Storm Drain Flow as Designed During Heavy Rains?
Storm drains are designed to re-route excessive rainwater from streets, parking lots, sidewalks, and buildings. The water disperses underground into the surrounding soil, rivers, creeks, or the ocean. It is important to understand this water is not filtered and dumping hazardous substances into drains is not acceptable. Keeping storm drains flowing as designed can prevent several issues.
Storm drains that are clogged or have obstructions in them often times cannot keep up with heavy rainfalls which can lead to a number of issues, including:
- Street flooding or flooding to nearby restaurants, hotels, businesses, etc.
- Ruin landscaping, especially near the catch basin
- Sewer system backup
- Trash and debris in the yard
- Damaged sidewalk or driveway due to water erosion
HOW JETTING STORM DRAINS CAN HELP?
Having storm drains jetted with high-pressure water helps to remove sediment build-up from the drains and clears the lines. It can also help remove other common items we tend to find in storm drains, like:
- Balls and other Kids’ Toys
Jetting will leave a storm drain clear of blockages while not damaging the drain itself. It will allow the drain to function as designed during heavy rainfalls (like rain from a hurricane), thus helping to prevent unnecessary flooding.
