I think there was a general feeling on this list that most of those drains
wouldn't fit a man and so calling them manholes is a bit of a misnomer.

Earlier discussion also branched into talk of entrances to culvert like
structures where the other end was unknown or a difficult to map network.
Drainage ditch running into a sewer type situations. These also don't
resemble manholes in the traditional sense.

If the native speakers think that „storm“ is required, so be it
