Hire A-Z Underground for excavation services focused on your needs and a desirable outcome!

What Is a Residential Storm Sewer Drain?

When it rains, the runoff from your roof and property have to go somewhere. Typically, they flow into a storm pipe and then into the municipal waste system. However, if the system becomes clogged, you could wind up with water in your basement, sinkholes in your yard and other undesirable results that come from having too much water with nowhere to go.

Unlike sewer lines, storm drains aren’t usually treated at the local sewage plant. Therefore, it’s important to make sure your system works well so that excess water flows freely into the public system and, eventually, open waterways.

Storm Sewer Systems

If you have a combined residential storm sewer system, it will periodically require repairs and maintenance. Choose a local company with many years of experience digging trenches to repair home store drains and pipes.

It all starts with an inspection of your system to find out where the reported problem lies. For example, if you call us due to backups and clogs in your storm drain, we may recommend digging a trench to access your pipe and catch basin. This allows us to access the problem area and repair or replace broken components.

Understanding Resident Storm Sewer Excavation

At A-Z Underground, we offer trenchless and trenched solutions for your residential storm sewer excavation in Minneapolis, MN. Before we begin, we will perform a comprehensive evaluation to help you understand all of your options. A typical crew will include laborers with a background in plumbing and experienced operators to perform the escalation.

Normally, we recommend trenchless solutions that offer significant labor and cost savings. However, there are times when an excavation just makes more sense. For example, if you have overly compact soil, dense foliage and massive tree root incursion into your storm system, trenchless solutions simply may not work.

While we dig a trench to reach your home storm sewer system, the excavator usually spans the trench, scooping out soil, rocks and other materials until it reaches the damaged pipe. This positioning also minimizes the damage to your lawn and landscaping. Once our team completes the storm system repair or replacement, we will backfill the trench and place fresh sod on the upturned soil. This gives you a head start on restoring any landscape features disturbed by the digging. Rest assured that our pros also stand behind their work. So, if you aren’t happy with the results, we aren’t finished.
