Catch basins and storm drains help route water from rains, floods and other ground water into the sewer system and away from vulnerable areas of your home. If they get clogged, it can cause severe flooding that will have lasting damage to your home or business.

How do catch basins and storm drains become clogged? They funnel away harmful debris, such as:

Leaves

Paper

Branches

Rocks
