What is a Storm Drain?

A storm drain is an infrastructure designed to drain excess rain and groundwater. It removes large amounts of water that run off of your house, the street, sidewalk, and other surfaces.

The water is typically carried to natural water bodies such as streams, lakes, or rivers. In some cases, the drain is connected to city sewer lines. Taking care of stormwater and sewer systems is a fundamental part of being a community.

Why Should You Install a Storm Drain Tie-In?

Storm sewer tie-ins prevent flooding. Storm drains help divert rainwater from storms or melting snow away from impervious surfaces lowering the risk of flooding. A stormwater drain is vital in protecting you and your property from damage caused by access water collecting on your property.

How Much Does it Cost To Tie In Storm Drains?

The cost varies by location, the amount of equipment needed, and the coding or permitting requirements from the city. Many municipalities require permits for this type of work, and the cost of a license per city varies by municipality.
