All depends upon why the area is flooding in the first place.
Without site specific data there is no conceivable answer available.
Personally I would recommend you contact a Civil Engineer to inspect the site then determine how comfortable you are following their advice.
The link provided discussing drain tips is generally accurate however I disagree with any sort of filter device/fabric covering the drain pipe. Proper backfill material and the provision for access points along the drain pathway allow for routine maintenance which eliminate drain blinding common to filter/wrapped piping.
Same with intake basin location/necessity. Site condition(s) dictate specific recommendations with resultant design criteria.
Nice Try = You Suck Spelled Differently
