The nosewheel of the aircraft descended into a depression, and the propeller was damaged when it struck the asphalt. The fueling pumps are near a catch basin, which is marked with white stripes and orange edge lights. Without calling FSS, the pilot taxied away from the pumps, then past hold-short lines and two stop signs directing pilots to contact the FSS, and then through the catch basin.
