Depending on where you are from, different countries have different terms for "storm drain".




Accordingly to Wikipedia, a storm drain is actually a tunnel that carry runoffs (rain) from urban areas. For a layman, it helps to think along the line of sewage system operates beneath our cities.


In the US, this is typically referred to as "storm drain" or "storm sewer".




In the united kingdom, this is actually typically referred to as "surface water drain" or "surface water sewer".


In Australia and New Zealand, it is typically referred to as "stormwater drain".


And there it is, the very next time you hear someone mentioning "storm drain", "storm sewer", "surface water drain","surface water sewer" and "stormwater drain", congratulations, you know they mention the same thing.


Functions of storm drain include draining excess water (rain or storm water) and ground water from pavement, streets and carparks into rivers and streams to avoid flooding.


Although storm drains accomplish a amazing job of draining excess water from the urban areas, the floor grates inlets are essentially openings where left uncovered can pose a danger to pedestrians. Left uncovered, rubbish will go into the storm drains and cause choking which may eventually trigger flooding.


To ensure storm drains serve their purposes while minimizing the potential risks outdoor drainage grates posed to pedestrians and to prevent choking of the drains, drain covers (gratings) are employed to cover the inlets (openings) of the storm drains to achieve two street furniture purposes.
