Storm Drain Cleaning in National City, CA

If your property has storm drains, the drains are likely to clog with debris which must be periodically removed to allow storm water to flow freely. If this is not done, water will pool up at the surface and can damage roofs, parking lots, landscape and other infrastructure very quickly. Storm drain obstructions are also a factor in water quality because storm water is not treated as is the water in the sanitary sewers.

What Is The Difference Between Storm Sewers And Sanitary Sewers?

The sanitary sewer carries un-pressurized water and wastes from bathrooms, laundries, kitchens, and other plumbing components to a wastewater treatment plant for filtering, and other treatment and then discharging into the environment.

The storm sewer is a system for carrying rainfall and snowmelt runoff and other drainage. It cannot handle sewage or hazardous wastes. The runoff is carried in underground pipes or open ditches and flows untreated into local streams, rivers and other surface water bodies. Storm drains in National City, CA, maybe in curbs or low-lying outdoor areas or where the ground is paved over preventing water from percolating into the soil. Older properties sometimes have floor drains leading to the storm runoff system.
