Catch Basins


Durable and Versatile Component in Stormwater Drainage Systems

Long-Lasting Durability

Precast concrete catch basins are strong, durable, and able to withstand heavy loads, erosion, and other environmental factors, making them a long-lasting and cost-effective solution.

Customized to Project Needs

Precast concrete catch basins can be customized to specific project size, shape, and inlet/outlet configurations.


Precast catch basins are low-maintenance and require minimal upkeep over their lifespan and their smooth interior surface helps prevent blockages and promote efficient water flow.

Sustainable Manufacturing

Precast concrete is an environmentally friendly option made from locally sourced materials that can be recycled.

Quick Installation

We manufacture our catch basins in our quality-controlled plant, rather than on site, for quick installation and minimal site preparation.


Critical to any stormwater system, Catch Basins collect and manage stormwater runoff from impervious surfaces such as roadways and parking lots. As an integral component in stormwater drainage, catch basins protect properties against water damage caused by excess rainwater or irrigation, prevent flooding, and promote improved water quality.

ParkUSA’s catch basins are made of precast concrete with high load capacity, ensuring longevity and durability. They are installed at low points in the system with a grate or cover to prevent debris from entering. The collected water is then transported through an underground stormwater conveyance network of pipes to a discharge point such as a storm sewer, stream, or river.

ParkUSA products are designed with environmental protection in mind, promoting sustainable practices and improved water quality. Our team can find the right solution for your specific need, whether it be for a residential, commercial, or industrial application.

How It Works

Catch basins collect and manage stormwater runoff from impervious surfaces such as roadways and parking lots. When it rains, water flows over the surface and into a catch basin through an inlet opening. A grate or filter on top of the catch basin prevents debris and other materials from entering the system.

The collected water is temporarily stored in the catch basin until it can be conveyed to a discharge point, such as a nearby storm sewer, stream, river, or other body of water. The water is conveyed out of the catch basin through an outlet opening and into a network of underground pipes that transport the water to the discharge point, preventing flooding and damage to infrastructure and properties.

ParkUSA’s catch basins improve water quality by capturing and filtering out debris and pollutants from the stormwater runoff. Periodic maintenance activities remove the captured materials, ensuring that the system is functioning correctly and preventing blockages.


About the Precast Catch Basin

The ParkUSA Model CB catch basin is designed to collect and convey stormwater or runoff from paved areas such as parking lots, roads, and other hard surfaces. It is made of precast concrete and consists of a square or rectangular box with an open top, a cast-in steel frame, and a traffic-rated cast iron grate to allow stormwater runoff to enter while preventing coarse debris from entering the system. The perimeter walls contain thin-wall knockouts for connecting pipes for stormwater conveyance.


ParkUSA’s precast concrete catch basins have a wide range of potential applications in stormwater management systems.

Parking Lots

Catch basins are commonly installed at low points in parking lots to collect and remove surface runoff and prevent flooding.

Streets and Highways

Catch basins are used in streets and highways to manage stormwater runoff. They are placed at intervals along the road to collect and remove surface runoff and prevent flooding.

Residential Areas

Catch basins help protect properties from water damage by collecting and managing surface runoff from downspouts, planter areas, and landscape sections.

Commercial Areas

Catch basins manage stormwater runoff from large, paved areas and can handle heavy vehicle loads.

Industrial Sites

Catch basins are used in industrial sites to collect and manage surface runoff from manufacturing processes and large paved areas.
