Catch Basins

Catch basins (or storm 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, which collects sediment and debris that enters the catch basin through the grate inlet. The collected debris is typically removed by hand or by the use of a vactor truck.

Catch Basin Adjustment & Repair

Catch basins often need to be adjusted to ensure proper drainage. This process is done by removing the asphalt perimeter of a catch basin and excavating the base as deep as necessary to perform the adjustment.

Catch Basin Installation

When parking lots do not have proper drainage, catch basin installation can be a viable solution. If there is a place to tie in the drain tile, or let the water run off, then M & S Paving and Sealing can install a catch basin in the lot.

For catch basin installation, the proposed area is excavated and a new concrete superstructure is installed.
