(US storm sewer)
A drain built to carry away excess water in times of heavy rain.
- Rain turned the dirt to mud, clogging a storm drain and allowing water to pool in the road.
- In this case, run off from the roof drains went into the storm drain and out into Parkside Creek.
- As a consequence, less water runs straight to storm sewers over-taxed by heavy rains.
