Abstract

Many locations have devices designed to collect debris and dirt before it enters a sanitary sewer system or storm water basin. Some examples of these devices range from simple trench drains in a work bay floor to large concrete basins in wash bays that collect sand and grit. Sweeping streets and cleaning catch basins to remove accumulated sediments, trash and debris reduces the amount of pollutants entering Iowa’s waterways. Regularly cleaning catch basins also reduces the threat of local flooding. The one thing all of these types of structures have in common is that they periodically require cleaning that generates a waste.
