Catch Basins and Storm Drains
The main purpose of a storm drain is to route ground water to the storm system and away from your home in order to prevent flooding. Storm drains and catch basins wash away harmful debris like leaves, paper, rocks, trash, and food. If your storm drain becomes clogged, those materials can back up into your sewer system causing your drains to stop up and potentially flood your home.

The risk for clogging and flooding becomes more serious during heavy downpour or snow melt. Having your storm drain and catch basin regularly cleaned out and maintained will help prevent against this.

Benefits of Cleaning Out Your Catch Basin and Storm Drain
A properly functioning catch basin and storm drain after a cleaning will:
- Relieve water pressure that could potentially build up in your walls or foundation causing a leak
- Prevent water due to heavy rains from getting into your home and causing a flood
- Ensure your basement stays dry. This is especially important because you could have a finished basement you worked hard to create, or store precious mementos down there that you don’t want destroyed.
