Area Drain Tips
Inspect the entire drainage system annually in the fall prior to the rainy season to
assure that it is properly functioning. Flush the area drain system as necessary.
Inspect graded slopes to area drains every six months to assure proper drainage. Be sure a two percent slope for the first five feet is maintained from all structures in landscaped areas.
Conduct quarterly inspections of the area drains to make sure the protective drain covers are in place and free from debris. Replace broken, damaged or missing area drain
