Clogged Storm Drains Leads to Flooding in Victorville Home?

A storm drain is clogged, allowing rainwater to flood a street. We restore storm damage 24 hours a day in San Bernardino County.

Victorville residents rely on us to mitigate and restore storm damage quickly and efficiently. One common cause of water intrusion is clogged storm drains. Storm drains are designed to channel rainwater away from streets and urban areas, preventing it from pooling on roads and causing flooding. When these drains become obstructed, several problems arise.

The primary function of storm drains is to collect rainwater and direct it towards drainage systems or natural water bodies like rivers and streams. When clogs form, rainwater cannot flow freely into the drains. Instead, it accumulates on streets and roads, forming puddles that can quickly turn into larger bodies of standing water.

Clogged storm drains can lead to overflows. As rainwater cannot enter the drains efficiently, it can overwhelm the drainage system's capacity, causing water to spill onto streets and low-lying areas. This excess water contributes to flooding as it has nowhere to go.

Clogs can exacerbate localized flooding. When water backs up behind a clogged drain, it can flow into nearby buildings and properties, causing damage to homes and infrastructure. To prevent clogged storm drains and ensure the effective functioning of stormwater management systems, it is crucial to maintain and clear storm drains regularly.
