Causes of a Clogged Storm Drain
It’s important to keep in mind that since runoff is directly sent to local waterways, you should use caution when performing certain activities like washing your vehicle as these will pollute the water. Below are some debris that should not enter your storm drain.
- Antifreeze, oil and other vehicle chemicals
- Plant fertilizer, pesticides, and herbicides
- Pet waste
- Leaves and lawn trimmings
Allowing these hazardous materials fall into your storm drain is not only harmful, it’s against the law in some places.
Signs You Have a Clogged Storm Drain Pipe
If you have a clogged storm drain or catch basin you’ll experience:
- Slow draining
- Standing water
- Unpleasant smells
