High water table

We keep getting flooded every time it rains because we have a high water table. We had a submersible pump, which unfortunately burnt out when we were away one weekend, and we just have not got the money tor replace it. There is so much water in our backyard and it collects underneath our Log Cabin (built on stilts). Do you have any suggestions what to underneath the flat and also what to do with the water accumulating in the back yard?

    Is it possible to put in drains to drain off to another location, My parents garage will flood during heavy rains until we put a drain in front and buried pipe to drain it in a ditch that was on property,

    We have a similar problem but only when the neighborhood pumping station goes out. When that happens my hubby puts a pump in the middle of the highest water point and runs a hose to the ditch by the road. Temporary fix but might help others.
