Storm Drains

Throughout the more urbanized parts of Morgan County, you will find STORM DRAINS.

Storm Drains help move storm water runoff out of the streets and through a series of underground pipes. This is a part of many cities infrastructures. Once the runoff goes through the grates of a storm drain, the water flows through a series of pipes. The water flows and accumulates through the pipe system. The water drains inside a smaller pipe, as the water accumulates and it goes to the bigger pipes, and then finally to the biggest pipe. The biggest pipe then drains into a local ditch or creek.

The above photos taken by Gary Oakes, are of storm drains and storm drain piping being used to connect to the State’s I-69 project around Martinsville, Indiana.

This is a video giving information on where storm water goes.
