Catch Basin Cleanup Project

Catch Basin Cleanup Mission

Street flooding is a big issue in New Orleans. The pumping system cannot always keep up with the mass amounts of rainwater our city receives during a thunderstorm.. The system is not as reliable as we would like it to be. Our pumping capacity is lower due to trash and debris clogging the catch basins. When our pumping capacity is lower it causes flooding in our neighborhoods. On August 5, 2017, the New Orleans area got 8-10 inches of rain. Our pumps were not able to pump everything out in a timely manner, causing many homes, businesses, and cars to flood.

Catch Basin Filter Solution

Along with using this site to help impact the improvement of New Orleans' drainage process, one possible solution to our drainage problem is usage of the Botgurlz's screen filter. The screen is placed over the opening of the catch basin and filters out trash which impedes proper drainage.
