It’s not unusual to have a clog or drainage issue in the storm drain during heavy rain season. However, if this is an ongoing problem that has become severe or recurring, you may need to take a step back and think about what might be causing the problems. Federal EC specializes in pipe rehabilitation in Atlanta, GA.

The following are some of the issues that our storm drain rehabilitation experts can provide solutions to.


A blockage in the storm drain could be caused by a large piece of debris blocking the drains. This can come from a tree branch, rock, heavy object, or animal. It’s important to check the drainage once it’s safe to do so during periods of heavy rainstorms to ensure no blockages are present. In case of tree root invasions, a newly repaired pipe via trenchless pipe lining is sturdier and therefore more resistant to tree roots.

Collapsed Pipes

If you live in an older neighborhood, there is a chance that your storm drains have deteriorated near the point of collapse. When this happens, flooding will ensue. This can be a serious problem, as disease-carrying germs, bacteria, and pollutants are brought into your property. Get in touch with your underground utility construction expert for information regarding your storm drain’s condition.

Fractured Systems

Another reason that your storm drains may need to be fixed is that the pipes are severely damaged. If your pipes are cracked and have holes, they can become a breeding ground for insects and other pests. This can cause serious health and safety concerns. CIPP pipe lining offers a solution to this problem by sealing up the cracks and holes to ensure that pests cannot get in.

Open or Displaced Joints

If a joint has been damaged or is loose, you must be sure that it is re-attached or repaired as soon as possible.
