The success of a municipal stormwater system is heavily dependent on the efficiency of the catch basin. This efficiency is in part reliant on how clean the catch basin is. With help from your local service provider, keeping the catch basin clean is simple. There are many reasons why catch basin cleaning is so important, but here are some of the key details surrounding catch basins.
At a municipal level, catch basins cause major problems if not serviced correctly. Proper drainage is hampered by damage and debris that builds up over time. Many times, damage or buildup isn’t noticeable until after a storm when a municipality experiences flooding. In order to avoid flooding damage and general drainage issues, it’s best to contact a drain service provider that has extensive experience with municipal catch basins.
To avoid these types of issues, work with a service provider to schedule a regular maintenance routine. Not only does this prepare you for your next storm, but a new schedule for your municipality sets you up for success in the future. Having a plan in advance and creating an automated catch basin cleaning routine saves time and reduces the stress that comes with emergencies affecting your town, city or county.
An ideal service provider provides a complete inspection of your catch basin. This includes checking to see if everything is in place, working correctly, and in good condition. From there, the catch basin is emptied and cleaned, allowing for optimal drainage during and after the next storm. A proper catch basin cleaning also includes wall cleaning and replacement of the cover or grate if needed.
Wind River Environmental recommends doing this at least once per year, but depending on the amount of debris in the catch basin, it’s possible that more than once is necessary to avoid potential issues. Service providers work with you to create a custom timeline that is specific for your municipality based on location, weather, and any unique situations that require extra attention.
