How Often Should You Have Your Catch Basin Cleaned?
The common mistake that a great deal of commercial property owners make is waiting to have their catch basins cleaned until there is a visible need. For example, if the grate is already blocked or the water has been backing up, that is a sign that the cleaning should have already taken place. A good practice to have is to regularly schedule catch basin cleaning to prevent such problems from occurring in the first place.
This will enable the water to flow freely through the drain and prevent even more costly expenses down the line. A good rule of thumb is to have catch basins cleaned at least once a year if not more.

Catch Basin Maintenance
It is crucial that every facility from the smallest operation to the largest understands the importance of catch basin cleaning and storm drain maintenance. You will notice all types of different debris that are collected in the catch basin. A backup can be caused by twigs, leaves, grass, solid/foreign materials, and sand which accumulates over time. The catch basin is doing what it was designed for by isolating the materials in one spot. These items are removed with a storm drain cleaning and disposed of properly according to waste regulations.
Understanding why a storm drainage backup is happening will help address the situation. A storm drain back up is an accumulation caused by stoppage in the water flow. Something in the system is preventing the water from continuing down the path, so it is re-routed back in the reverse direction instead of its normal course. This can be caused by a clog in the drain or a broken pipe. If not treated right away it can turn into an emergency situation.
It is also important never to dispose of hazardous materials down a storm drain which can hurt the environment. An extra benefit of properly maintaining the storm drain system is to help protect from water run off.
How you can help to maintain your catch basin
By following a few simple guidelines, the general public and local residents can help ensure catch basins in their communities function properly.

Don't dump chemicals, motor oil, pet waste, empty bottles or cans, soapy water, or other liquids or solids down a catch basin or storm drain.
Contact your public works department if you notice standing water near a catch basin or storm drain after rainfall, or if you notice a clogged or damaged catch basin.
