CATCH BASIN DRAINAGE SOLUTION
Have pooling water in your yard? Greenway LS can provide you different solutions to address your unique problem!
What is a catch basin?
Catch basins, also known as yard drains, are designed to collect standing surface water as quickly as possible. They function exactly like a drain you’d find in a shower or sink. The speed of collection allowed by a catch basin is a serious asset for yards that receive large amounts of water that can cause flooding and damage to structures. Very often, houses suffering from flooding issues can be solved with a simple, well placed catch basin.
Catch Basin Frequently Asked Question
My yard has a lot of water…how much can these basins collect?
The basins we use have a maximum rating of 150 GPM (Gallons Per Minute).
That’s the equivalent of a 5 gallon bucket every two seconds
9,000 gallons of water per hour.
A typical back yard of 5,000 square feet with water 6 inches deep would drain in two hours.
That’s a lot of water.

We Love What We Do
There are multiple reasons why we love working with yard drainage. Customer satisfaction for one, especially when customers tell us how thrilled they are with the work we have done to correct their lawn drainage problems. We know we have help to resolve a concern.
Another one is figuring out realistic ways to solve a water problem without costing an arm and a leg. Some companies will come in and quote upwards to 50K for a project that involves massive house waterproofing. The problem is, once completed, there can still be flooding in a yard.
Our solution, for a fraction of the cost, is to divert the water from the property. This way the house stays dry and the water in the yard is gone.
In our line of work, we have seen massive over expenditures. Typically charged for correcting excessive water in and around the house. Our experience getting to the root of the problem the first time is best practice. Often there is a simple, and effective way to deal with the problem.
Licensed and Insured
Yes, Greenway LS is fully licensed and insured. In Wisconsin it is required to be licensed as a “utility contractor,” to do any outdoor plumbing or sewer hookups. There are also state codes about what pipes to use…required slope…calculating GPM (gallons per minute), etc.
Greenway LS believes in following the state regulations as another way to insure proper installation. We believe it gives the customer another layer of assurance the project will be completed according and up to code.
In addition, Greenway LS must submit to the county a plan for the work to be performed. Once they sign off, the permit (for the work) will be issued. All of this must be done before any work can begin.
