Concrete Storm Drain Structure

A concrete storm drain structure is rather nondescript in appearance, but serves an important duty. The bulk of these structures are primarily hidden underground or protected by embankments. Visible parts include curb inlets and street gutters which are positioned along sidewalks and roadways.

Areas without a concrete storm drain structure are often plagued by flooding any time it rains. Storm drains are designed to pull excess water into the system by means of gravity. City streets and parking lots are built with slight elevation so water will naturally flow into systems.

Storm Drain Catch Basins

Did you know storm drain catch basins have been in use since ancient times? Long ago, early civilizations used drainage systems to collect water for their crops prior to dry seasons, as well as to safeguard crops from flooding during rainy seasons.

Although storm drain catch basins have evolved and are no longer used for crop irrigation, they are still used to protect communities against flooding. Without these drainage systems cities and towns would be underwater or constantly dealing with flood management.
