How to clear a clogged catch basin with a Vac Truck

If you have a catch basin (drain) on your property; you might want to go take a look at it. Simply walk over to the catch basin and look down between the grates. If you see sediment, sludge, or other things lurking near the grates then it may be impacted and in need of clearing. (Contact DGC Environmental to clear your impacted catch basin) Take a look at our client’s catch basin which was impacted by over 80% sediment and grease.
