You might be a little surprised to learn that domestic sewage is only 0.1 percent pollutants and 99.9 percent pure water, but if you put a stormwater drainage system in place on your property, you can help to make it even cleaner. A drop inlet spillway can drop low or medium volumes of water over a 30 percent incline and coupling this with a stormwater drainage system can help your property to purify a large amount of runoff as it flows into the drain. As long as you have a proper catch basin insert inside of your storm drainage system, you can be certain that debris both large and small will be blocked from entering any waterways.
A stormwater drainage is an effective and low cost alternative to oil water separators and such a system can catch everything from food wrappers to silt and keep it out of the drain. Of course, the system itself will only be as effective as the stormwater filters that it uses to keep dirt and debris away. This is why it is important to check and replace all of your stormwater filters as needed so that your system can function the way that it was meant to. By keeping stormwater pollution from destroying local waterways, you will be doing your part to keep the environment in pristine condition so that it is safe not only for the local wildlife, but for people as well. In the meantime, your stormwater system will always continue to function.
