Preventative measures to care for your commercial stormwater drainage

Stormwater drains are designed to carry rainwater away from streets and direct it to nearby bodies of water. If a storm drain gets clogged with leaves, trash and other debris, water won’t be able to flow properly. This can lead to blockages, backups, flooding, and environmental contamination. It can also be a health hazard to people and animals.

Commercial stormwater drain designed to carry rainwater away from the street

Here are a few preventative tasks you can do to keep the storm drain around your business clear:


·       Properly dispose of waste and trash in the appropriate containers, and never dump waste or hazardous materials into storm drains.

·       Regularly sweep and remove debris, leaves and snow from the surface of the stormwater drain to avoid clogging.

·       Invest in proper grading to ensure water flows from your property and into the stormwater drainage system.

·       Post signs to remind employees of best practices and proper use. This helps ensure everyone knows the importance of clearing storm drains and the steps to prevent blockages.
