Catch Basin Maintenance and Repairs by Rose Paving
Storm basins (or catch basins) are primarily used to collect pavement runoff and act as a junction for a storm drain system. They are constructed with a sump below the pipe invert. The sump collects sediment and debris entering the catch basin through the grate inlet. The collected material is typically removed by hand or by the use of a vactor truck.
How Rose Paving Does Storm Basin Adjustment and Repair
To ensure proper pitch for drainage, storm basins often times need to be adjusted.
Once the asphalt perimeter of a storm basin has been removed, the base is excavated as deep as is necessary to perform the adjustment. Detailed specifications are available for download in our Storm Basin Specs Sheet library.
Storm Basin / Catch Basic Installation
In some cases, there is no proper drainage in a parking lot. Storm basin installation can be a possible solution in these cases. If there is a place to tie in the drain pipes, or a place to let the water run off, then a storm basin can be installed in the lot.
Procedure for Catch Basin Maintenance
The proposed area is excavated as needed and a new concrete superstructure is installed. Detailed specifications are available for download in our Storm Basin Specs Sheet library.
Catch Basin Replacement by Rose Paving
All utilities will be properly located prior to excavation. The perimeters of the area(s) to be excavated will be saw cut to enhance compaction and appearance. We will excavate the existing decayed block or pre-cast concrete catch basin, and properly dispose of all materials at a legal dumping site.
A pre-cast concrete catch basin with necessary adjustment rings will be installed and connected to the existing drainage lines. The existing cast iron frame and lid will be reinstalled on the new basin and reset at the proper height for proper drainage. The excavated area(s) will be backfilled with crushed aggregate, leveled, and compacted. We will then furnish and install hot asphalt mix which will be compacted and rolled to match existing grade. We provide the option to install reinforced concrete, in place of asphalt, for added longevity.
