    Storm sewer question??

    I was jetting out some storm sewers yesterday, and in the catch basin above the drain pipe there was a 4” brass clean out plug any clue what this is for ?

    In Seattle a storm catch basin if under a structure or roof like a parking garage, must drain to a sewer system not the storm sewer system and be trapped and I have seen cleanouts added for service, maybe thats what you are seeing?

      I agree, probably a cleanout for a running trap. We have those alot in Philly. Most cases you usually have to go from that cleanout to clean the storm line. That might be what your hitting if your jetter is going to far.

          Interesting, I have never seen or heard of a CB having a trap. Whether it's tied into sewer or not. It makes perfect sense but it's just something that is not done here.

          Cuda, is tieing into sewer still required in your area even for new building?
          I would think this somehow violates the clean water act???

            Yes how it works with the clean water act is only the covered CB's are ran to the sewer all the others go to the Storm Sewer, if the volume of water or sq. feet exceed a certain amount it is dumped into a large retention tank then goes to the sewer to reduce the flow in heavy rains.
