Precast concrete stormwater structures can be manufactured in an endless array of shapes and sizes to meet the needs of any project. In all cases, these products serve to detain, filter and control the flow of stormwater. When properly maintained, precast stormwater structures can boast a service life of more than 100 years.
The maintenance requirements for precast stormwater structures will vary based on capacity, rainfall, site conditions and the style of the structure. Local municipalities may also have recommendations or requirements for maintenance. However, following these guidelines will help ensure peak performance:
- Schedule quarterly inspections
- Perform an inspection after major rain events
- Clean the structure when necessary
- Observe stormwater flow during rainfall
For maintenance requirements specific to your stormwater structure, contact your local precast manufacturer.
