refers to the combination of underground conduits and surface inlet structures constructed for the purpose of removing runoff from the ground surface, usually from street pavement, and conveying it to some downstream discharge point.
The system of pipes that carries rain water from urban streets back to the ocean. Overwatering your yard can also cause water to run into the streets and into storm drains.

This term also refers to the end of the pipe where the stormwater is discharged.
A slotted opening leading to an underground pipe or an open ditch for carrying surface runoff.
An opening leading to an underground pipe or open ditch for carrying surface runoff, separate from the sanitary sewer or wastewater system

A drain that carries away unwanted rain, drainage or surface water.
A storm drain, storm sewer, stormwater drain (Australia) or surface water system (UK) is designed to drain excess rain and ground water from paved streets, parking lots, sidewalks, and roofs. Storm drains vary in design from small residential dry wells to large municipal systems. They are present on most motorways, freeways and other busy roads, as well as towns in areas which experience heavy rainfall, flooding and coastal towns which experience regular storms.
