Several people are not aware of the difference between sewer systems and storm drains in Colorado Springs. Although they seem similar, they are two completely different things. Storm drains takes water from storms and runoff directly to local rivers, wetlands, or the ocean without the water being filtered first. The sewer system is a connected network of pipes from homes or businesses that moves everything from water, to waste to a treatment facility. The sewage is cleaned, and then moved to the ocean.

When your sewer lines become clogged, they can negatively affect storm drains because they have the chance of overflowing manholes in the street. This can cause sewage to flow into the storm drains and contaminate the rivers, wetlands, or oceans that the water flows to. This is why it is so important to get your sewer lines cleaned to prevent this from happening. One small problem can have a disastrous impact on the community in which you live.
