And there you have it, when you hear someone mentioning "storm drain", "storm sewer", "surface water drain","surface water sewer" and "stormwater drain", congratulations, you know they refer to the exact 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 protect yourself from flooding.
Although storm drains do a amazing job of draining excess water from the urban areas, the inlets are essentially openings where left uncovered can pose a hazard to pedestrians. Left uncovered, rubbish will enter the storm drains and cause choking which can eventually end up with flooding.
In order to guarantee storm drains serve their purposes while minimizing the dangers posed to pedestrians and to prevent choking of the drains, drain covers (gratings) are widely-used to cover the inlets (openings) of the storm drains to achieve two purposes.
