Tips for Preventing Storm Drain Clogs and Runoff

Storm Drain

In Florida, heavy rains can happen in an instant. Storm drains are essential for whisking away the downpouring rain to keep streets and parking lots clear of standing water. While businesses and municipalities are responsible for maintaining drains on streets and parking lots, everyone can help prevent storm drain clogs and damaging runoff. Here are some ways you can help keep our storm drains in Miami and Broward counties clear and working correctly.

Plant Trees and Shrubs

One simple way to manage excess water on your property and lessen storm water drain excess is planting trees and shrubs. The roots of trees, bushes and shrubs help lower the water table to reduce runoff into the storm drains.

Sweep or Blow Leaves and Debris

Never use water to clear away leaves, grass clippings or debris from sidewalks or driveways. Sweep or use a blower to collect debris, then collect and dispose of the leaves, grass and debris – never blow or sweep your debris into the street! Using a pressure washer or garden hose can allow debris to flow down into the storm drains, causing clogs and other problems.

Never Dump Into Storm Drains

Putting anything into storm drains can cause problems – enough debris will find its way into these traps without any help. Never dump dirty water, oil, paint or chemicals into a storm drain – these can cause serious problems, clogs and runoff.

Clear Away Trash and Debris

If you see trash, branches or other debris in the street, on sidewalks or greenbelts near storm drains, collect and throw away the debris. The next time a heavy rain squall comes through, it will likely sweep that debris into a nearby storm drain.

Schedule Annual Storm Drain Cleaning

For business owners that have storm drains on their property, annual or biannual storm drain cleaning can prevent most clogs and runoff problems. Keeping storm drains clean can keep parking areas usable and improve the accessibility to the business.
