This lake forms with each rain in varying degrees. It lies between ours and the neighbor's yard and over the years has been leaving our yard growing larger in the neighbor's. We approached them about putting in a drainage system and were told they did that 20 years ago and weren't about to do it again. This happens up and down our street between houses and as a group we had gone before the village council with complaints. This past summer street work was done which included larger piping and grates being installed. We were told the problem was fixed.
This is the reason our sump pumps work so hard and never seem to last. Does anyone have any ideas? I am open to all suggestions except moving.
