The water originates from the farmers field in back of my property. The building and zoning from the county was no help.

    It’s a case of buyer beware..Did you notice the water when you moved in? Or was the property dry? Is this seasonal or 24/7? You may need drainge systems installed...an open ditch in the back may be what it takes to keep you dryer.

    Pam...Have you been there a while and it has just started. Meaning maybe he has done something different?

  • What did the county say?


    I would then consult a soils expert and have them analyze the situation. See what they say.


    Can you install a drain system to alleviate the problem? What about growing some trees that would potentially use the excess water?

    you could contact your county water dept and make sure it is not coming from the meter to your house - if they say it is okay you will need a plumber
