Catch basins that are clogged with debris are not only unhealthy and unsightly for your neighborhood, but they can also cause unnecessary and potentially dangerous flooding during rain events.

The City of Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation routinely cleans out the city’s 35,000 catch basins at least once a year, some with more frequency. However, if your neighborhood catch basin becomes clogged with debris, please call (800) 974-9794.

And remember, storm drains are for rainwater only!
