Daniel Dean installs minor or major storm drains and systems that are right for your business needs.
Commercial properties typically create more runoff per square foot than other land uses, mostly due to large areas of impervious surfaces such as roofs and parking lots. During a storm or downpour, this sudden accumulation of water has to go somewhere.
Storm water runoff from paved surfaces can be directed to unlined ditches (sometimes called swales or bioswales) before flowing into the storm sewers, recharge basins or detention ponds.
All commercial sites are required to maintain a storm water permit.

Installing a Storm Drain System
1. Water from gutter down spouts overwhelmed this narrow patch of soil between buildings, so corregated flexhose was attached to the down spouts to redirect the water.
2. Flexhose from multiple down spouts were networked into a larger pipe, which fed into a catch basin.
3. This catch basin receives storm water and contains a trap to restrict debris from entering the outlet pipe.
4. All excess storm water from the piping network is discharged away from the business at an outfall location where it can permeate into the ground.
5. What was once a muddy mess after a downpour now dries much quicker, allowing this business to operate safer and more efficiently.
Installing a Storm Trooper System
1. Plastic corrugated pipe is installed at specific elevations surrounded with stabilized sand in prep for backfilling or paving.
2. Inlet boxes (or catch basins) are used as a junction for the water to outfall in a different location. A grate will be placed on top of the box to allow water to flow into the basin.
3. To keep ditches and underground drainage in the right of ways from filling with dirt and sediment, the county requires devices, such as Storm Troopers, to be installed.
4. Runoff water circulates in the Storm Trooper, which has foil packs to collect oil and solvents. Dirt and sediment collect at the bottom, which is regularly cleaned out by a pump truck.
