Home / What If There Are No Storm Drains?

Federal EC is an expert in pipe rehabilitation in Atlanta, GA. Part of what we do is to make sure that our clients are well-informed about often-overlooked aspects of their properties, like storm drains.

We aim to provide the best solutions for you and your community.

In this post, we explore the roles and functions of a storm drain, what happens when storm drains fail or are simply not present, and how our storm drain rehabilitation experts can be of assistance.

What Does a Storm Drain Do?

Storm drains are a network of pipes dedicated to directing untreated rainwater, melted snow, and other types of rainfall runoff to nearby bodies of water such as streams, lakes, and rivers. This particular underground utility construction infrastructure serves an entirely different purpose from sewers because, as mentioned, storm drains only take relatively clean water, whereas sewer drains lead to wastewater treatment plants.

It is the municipality’s responsibility to make sure that illicit discharges such as pool or tub water, laundry water, car wash water, chemicals used in cleaning , and outright sewage wastewater don’t end up in the storm drain channels. In most cases, dumping of illicit discharge down storm drains is penalized.

What Would We Do Without Storm Drains?

Because they are where the rainfall is directed to, storm drains are the ones primarily responsible for preventing flooding, be it in the public roads, parking lots, and other concrete surfaces around the community. Needless to say, the lack of storm drains will result in flooding. And since the rainwater will have nowhere else to go, the sewers will become overloaded — increasing the likelihood of needing CIPP pipe lining.
