The job of a catch basin is to gather trash, dirt, sand, and other particles from entering your drainage system. Different examples of this type of basin include a car wash catch basin or storm drains. The reason this type of maintenance is so important, is that it helps to limit and prevent the amount of junk and garbage that enters a storm sewer. This debris, if allowed to build up, can eventually make its way to local waterways like streams and rivers.
Another important role of this drainage system is to channel away a heavy flow of water. Heavy rain or water from places like a car wash need a place to go. If the drainage grates are blocked by trash, sediment, leaves, or other materials there is a good chance this will create a blockage and eventually lead to flooding around the area.
The elimination of debris, sediment, and other materials from storm water helps catch and ensure proper functioning of the drainage system. This in turn helps to alleviate the probability of flooding in areas like parking lots or city streets. Regular maintenance of a storm catch basin can also reduce the risk of polluting or contaminating or your local water ways.
A common mistake is to wait until a catch basin fails to drain. At this point, it’s too late. If the basin is already blocked, contaminants are probably making their way into the local water system. Regular cleaning of a catch basin is the best course of action. It will also ensure your property does not fall victim to flooding.
