What is a catch basin?

A catch basin is a curbside receptacle whose function is to convey storm water from the streets and other urban surfaces into the storm drain system. The design of the basins includes a sump area that captures and temporarily stores some pollutants such as sediment. Catch basins are regularly maintained by the City of Findlay Sewer Maintenance Division.
