Plugged or clogged storm drains can cause flooding

The storm drain system, for most developments, includes components that carry, store, cleanse, and release the stormwater.  These components work together to reduce the impacts of development on the environment.  These impacts can include: 
  • Flooding, which results in property damage and blocked emergency routes 
  • Erosion, which can cause damage to salmon spawning habitat
  • Pollution, which harms fish and/or drinking water supplies 
The storm drain system provides a safe method to carry stormwater to the treatment and storage areas.  If a storm drain is plugged or obscured in any way, stormwater, and all other runoff, will not be able to drain properly – this will lead to street flooding.
