drainage help

I'm still going to run the subsoiler. I own the tractor and a half hour of work for my best customer ( 12-15 k a year) is an easy freebie. I can do and if it doesn't work it will open the door for the bigger project.

while you are designing the drainage i hope you have a place on the property for the drainage to go to.
it is not legal to daylight that water to the street or onto anothers property.

I took one of those groundwater "problems", channeled it to cisterns and pumped to irrigation. Worked for me and the client, once I convinced him.

Yes. They have about 15 k sqft of woods. We're not talking about down spout or drive way runoff.

On small lots of lets say 15k sqft how would you keep all down spouts and driveway run off on the property.

I think I saw a contractor tie into the sewer. New construction All down spouts are pipes and channel drain in the driveway.

that sounds good.

i have to manage the tail water from 15Milgals and 8Milgals monthly. it is a constant concern and requires proper planing and constant monitoring to stay legal.

it depends where you are. CA - AB1881 doesn't allow runoff over hardscapes but where i am there is no enforcement at this time.
some of the cities here require sewer connections for downspouts, others don't.
you could be in a pickle since you are re-introducing the water to the surface.
