What do Catch Basins do?

Catch basins are typically located next to street curbs or in rear yards of residential areas. They filter out debris such as leaves and litter.  The grids located on top of the catch basins are small enough to prevent large objects from falling into the sewer system, but large enough to ensure that the flow of water is not blocked.
