Storm drains are essential to any community, so it’s in everyone’s best interest to keep the utility in good condition. The great news is that Federal EC specializes in pipe rehabilitation in Atlanta, GA. We provide the best solutions for your storm drain problems.

Read on to learn more about some of the types of storm drain damage to look out for and how our expertise in underground utility construction can be beneficial.

1. Blockage

Debris such as leaves, branches, and trash can quickly form a blockage obstructing storm drains, stopping water from draining properly. Signs of a clogged storm drain include standing water and a foul odor. Clearing the debris on your own can be hazardous, and can even cause injuries or accidents. For safety and efficiency purposes, let the storm drain rehabilitation experts handle anything related to storm drains.

2. Pipe Fissures

Cracks and fissures can develop on the storm pipes due to a variety of reasons, such as substandard materials, shoddy construction, or just regular wear and tear. Whatever the cause, it’s best to get the issue addressed right away to avoid compromising the structural integrity of the storm drainage system. Our team typically recommends trenchless pipe lining for a convenient and efficient way to rehabilitate the pipes without causing the community some inconvenience.

3. Tree Root Intrusions

Even the smallest gaps in the storm drain pipes can allow tree roots to gain entry. Once the tree roots grow bigger, they can cause more damage to the drain system and cause blockages that will impact stormwater management in the neighborhood. CIPP pipe lining is an ideal solution for this problem, as it effectively seals out any cracks, preventing tree roots from getting in.

Attempting to repair a damaged pipe can cause more damage, thus resulting in additional future repair costs. A professional storm drain rehabilitation expert, such as Federal EC, will suggest the best course of action if you detect any of these issues. Contact us today.
