Side Entry Pit Trap

A side entry pit trap is a basket-like device fitted below the entrance to a stormwater system from road and carpark gutters. When stormwater passes through the basket into the side entry pit, material larger than the basket mesh (typically 5–20 mm) is retained. This material remains in the basket until it is cleaned out during required regular maintenance.
