Does storm drain water get cleaned?

No, storm drain water does not get cleaned. When water flows into a storm drain, it is immediately directed to rivers, lakes and ponds. That is why it is important to keep storm drains free of debris and other pollutants. The best way to ensure that the water that enters local bodies of water is not contaminated is to make sure that the storm drain does not have leaves, oil or pesticides that enter it.

How do you fix or repair a clogged storm drain?

The method required to unclog your storm drain will vary depending on the severity of your storm drain’s clog. In the past, clogs required excavation to access the clogged part of the drain. With new high pressure water jetting methods, tree roots, dirt and silt can be easily removed without invasive excavation methods.

Why is my storm drain backing up?

Your storm drain may be backing up because of excess debris, such as leaves building up inside of it. If your storm drain backs up during a storm, that could be a sign that you have a clog in your storm drain or that a clog is beginning to form. Getting your storm drain cleaned regularly is the best way to prevent expensive and inconvenient clogs. You should also regularly clear the area surrounding your storm drain to prevent leaves and other debris from entering it. To get your storm drain cleaned, contact us today

How do you clean a clogged storm drain?

To clean a clogged storm drain you can either use a high pressure hose or a plumbing snake to remove the clog. To test whether or not the clog has been removed, you should try pouring water down the storm drain. While attempting to clean a clogged storm drain, it is important that you do not allow any debris you have removed to fall back into the storm drain. 

Regular maintenance of the area around your storm drain is key to preventing it from becoming clogged. If you do not have the correct tools or are unable to get your storm drain unclogged, you should call a utility service company to remove the clog. To get your storm drain cleared, call us today
