Storm drains are a crucial part of community infrastructure used to reduce the potential for flooding on surface areas like city streets, sidewalks, and parking lots. It's designed to drain excess rain and ground water from those impervious surfaces into natural bodies of water. This is where we come in - our expertise encompasses installation and repair of storm drain pipes, manholes, curb inlets, outlet structures, box culverts, retention and detention systems, and other specialty concrete structures.
Storm Sewer Systems
Some typical components include:
- mainline storm drainage piping
- inlet structures (curb inlet, yard inlet, etc.)
- small diameter roof drainage laterals
- cleanouts for small lateral maintenance
- detention tanks to temporarily hold excessive amounts of runoff
Many storm drainage systems are gravity sewers that drain untreated storm water into rivers or streams—so it is unacceptable to pour hazardous substances into the drains.
Blenheim Culvert Repair
Work at this project consisted of repair of the existing culvert as well as adding new RCP pipe to extend the discharge farther away from Blenheim Dr. Clearing, tree removal, grading, and rip rap slope protection was also required.
