What to Know About a Driveway Catch Basin

by | Nov 24, 2021 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

A driveway catch basin is a large drain placed in the lower areas of the paved space, angled to catch all water and runoff from the area. The paving is usually angled towards the draining space. The surface drain catches the initial flow and directs it into a box beneath the surface. This box, in turn, is tied to an underground drainage system that will carry the water into storm drains and sewer systems. Multiple drains can often be installed along an area to catch a much larger volume or contain a much wider space on the surface. With these ideal installations, you can reduce flooring and ensure your parking area is clear of the water at all times. Read on to find out more about these.
