Need help with water problem

First I am not sure how these picture will upload and what direction so sorry if they are turned the wrong way.
I am also not sure if this is the location to post this topic.

I am looking at building a small shop for my fertilization business to store my truck and trailer. I need to insure the water stays out of the shop and goes to other locations

If you right click on the pictures and click "View Image" they open up properly.

You need to look at grading and moving the water via berms, Swales and grading the lay of the ground.. French drain will help some but your issue is on top of the ground not in the ground.

I'll say you have water problems,

I have no idea how to deal with water that runs in every direction but downhill

Yes you are very wright. I was hoping with the size of the drain more water would have gone into it instead of over it.

Maybe it's just eyes, but is that a permeable textile you used? Kinda looks like visqueen.

Build the shop up above the water level. Some regular ditches will help ya direct the water away as well. Thats quite a bit of surface water to deal with that sucks. Good luck

put your tile in the ground with risers at certain intervals then build terraces to make the risers drain. and size your tile appropriate to the amount of run off you have

Junior hit the nail on the head.

You need to move this water on the surface of the earth and divert it around the building space. No sort of perforated pipe will ever catch this mass of water. You could use large catch basins and pipes, but that is a large amount of water you have moving there. Just divert it on the surface.
