Are you concerned about standing water on your asphalt parking lot or driveway? If so, it's essential to address the issue as soon as possible. Not only does standing water pose a safety hazard for those passing by, but it can also lead to more significant issues with your asphalt.
One key component in the proper drainage of water from impervious surfaces like asphalt is the catch basin, also known as a storm drain. These structures are designed to help deplete water from liquefying snow and groundwater, ensuring that your parking lot remains free from standing water.
However, if your catch basins are damaged or not functioning properly, it can lead to hidden potholes and weakened support for the asphalt surface. The freeze and thaw cycle can exacerbate these issues, causing water to seep underneath the surface and weaken the supporting base. This can lead to costly repairs and a decline in the overall appearance and safety of your property.

How to tell if your catch basin needs repair
To determine if your catch basin needs repair, you should first visually inspect it for any obvious signs of damage such as cracks in the concrete, missing or damaged grates, and clogs in the drain. You should also check for any standing water in the basin, as this could be a sign of a blockage or damaged drain. If you notice any of these issues, or if you experience frequent flooding in the area around the catch basin, it is likely that the basin needs to be repaired. Additionally, if you notice any strange odors coming from the catch basin, this could also be a sign that it needs to be repaired or cleaned.
