YouTube: How To Use A Catchment Basin To Eliminate Ponding And To Save Precious Rain Water on an Industrial Property.

During heavy rains, our industrial parking lot would have six inch puddles. Our cement contractor, De Olivera Concrete removed approximately 1,000 feet of concrete, dug a 8 by 8 by 8 foot deep Catchment Basin, filled it with gravel, and installed a steel grate so rainwater could percolate back into the earth.
