sump

A sump (American English and some parts of Canada: oil pan) is a low space that collects any often-undesirable liquids such as water or chemicals. A sump can also be an infiltration basin used to manage surface runoff water and recharge underground aquifers.[1] Sump can also refer to an area in a cave where an underground flow of water exits the cave into the earth.
