If you have a catch basin or multiple catch basins located directly on your property than you are responsible for the maintenance, not the municipality.

In fact, the municipality typically maintains catch basins that are located on the street or on town property only. That means you need to hire your Millbury MA catch basin cleaning company if any catch basins are located in your yard or on your grounds. So, what can happen if you fail to take care of this important issue? First and foremost, it can cause a flood. Millbury MA catch basin cleaning is important because catch basins are devices that go long way in helping to avoid floods. They work in the following manner. In essence, a catch basin is a box that is buried in the ground at a low point.

There is a grate at the top of the box that is located on ground level. Whenever there is a rainstorm or a massive amount of snow melts at the same time, the ensuing water will flow until it reaches the catch basins. At that point the stormwater will enter into the catch basin through the grate. As the water flows it collects sand, dirt, garbage, leaves, sticks and other debris. When the stormwater enters into the catch basins the heavy debris sinks to the bottom of the catch basin box.

The water exists the catch basin through a pipe and is distributed to local waterways, retention ponds, or a waste treatment facility. The debris must be removed from the catch basin at least twice per year. If there are heavy rainstorms or an excessive amount of snowmelt runoff the catch basins should be cleaned out on a more frequent basis. If the debris is not removed from the catch basins it will fill up the box and block the distribution pipe. If that happens the stormwater and snowmelt runoff has nowhere to go. So, it exists the catch basin and goes back into the street.

This is when flooding occurs. Flooding from overflowing catch basins can cause a significant amount of damage to your property, your neighbor’s property, and town property. That’s why you need to contact your Millbury MA catch basin cleaning company today to schedule service.
