Draining question - how to rechannel water?

Annie

Answered

I had a drainage ditch in the basement where water went down it rather than down towards my house. The county redid the street and raised the street. The drainage ditch has filled and below me the drainage ditch stops because the neighbor's ditch is no longer a ditch but filled with dirt and grass. How do I rechannel this water.

    Have you called the county public works department? They created a new drainage problem. They have heavy duty equipment to dig a new trench. Doing it yourself would be very laborious and paying someone to do it quite costly.
