A returning commercial client called our office about their parking lot drainage problems. As it turned out, their drain trench was getting clogging and that was requiring continuous maintenance. Our client needed a solution for this nonstop problem. We visited the property and discovered the sides of the trench drain collapsing. Our client did not want to replace with another trench drain, so we devised another plan.
We decided to remove the trench drain completely and install standard inlets to tie to the existing storm drain system. The only problem was that the surrounding area of the parking lot was paved flat because of this trench drain, so we had to correct this additional drainage issue as well.
We removed approximately 200 feet of the failing trench drain and we replaced with storm style sewers. We tied these inlets to the existing storm system, but we still had to fix the flat parking lot. Therefore, we repaved the minimum area required to accommodate the positive drainage. The customer was thrilled with the results saying how great the parking lot and drain system works now after a storm.
