One of the keys to preserving your paved surfaces and keeping them in optimal condition is proper drainage. Storm sewers and catch basins are designed to capture and drain excess rainwater from paved surfaces. Unfortunately, many parking lots do not take drainage into account, which can cause ponding water, seepage into the asphalt surface and eventual pavement failure.
M&J’s experts can assess your pavement to ensure proper drainage. If your sewer or catch basin needs an adjustment, we can excavate the area around it, removing excess asphalt and re-installing it to allow the free flow of water and improve your capture capacity.
Additionally, we offer a host of storm sewer repairs, including:
In some cases, a storm sewer may be added to a parking lot in need of drainage depending on the availability of a main sewer line nearby or other area capable of accepting water runoff. The most common repair includes installing a pre-cast basin, connecting a new sewer pipe to an existing inlet, and re-grading the parking lot's asphalt surface to allow for the new drainage pattern.
