Five Common Causes of a Clogged Storm Drain Pembroke Pines, FL

Five Common Causes of a Clogged Storm Drain

Eco Pumping Services truck

A storm drain should be able to handle severe weather episodes, protecting your parking lot from flooding in the process. When business premises become water logged after the rain, a clogged storm drain could be responsible. These five common causes of blockages require investigation and repairs.

Foreign Objects

Storm drains are designed to handle water, but they often become clogged with foreign objects. Most of the semi-solid or solid materials that end up in a storm drain come from the street. However, human negligence can exacerbate the problem when both adults and kids dispose of trash in accessible storm drains.

Severe Weather

Severely heavy rain can overwhelm the capacity of a storm drain. When water has nowhere else to go, it will back up onto parking lots and other nearby surfaces. Flooding is not only an eyesore, but a potential health hazard. Pathogens thrive in dirty water and kids love to play in puddles.

Damaged Pipes

Pipe damage can occur when substandard materials are used in the construction of storm drain pipes. However, root system intrusion is one of the most common causes of damaged pipes. An investigation of your storm drain system will identify the culprit and provide a path to repairing the damage.

Poor Design or Installation

If a storm drain suffers from design and installation flaws, any projection of how much water the system can handle will likely fall short. You may need to replace sections of piping or reinstall the storm drain network altogether.

Impeded Water Flow

When water flow is impeded in any way, it will affect the performance of a storm drain system. This issue can be the result of several issues including design, weather and potential blockages. A thorough investigation is needed to establish any areas of concern that are impacting water flow.
