    Guy wants a price from me for leveling his back yard and connecting water drain to his neighbors pipe. Both neighbors on each side of him have lawns about a foot higher then his. Both the neighbors also have drains . The neighbor on the left has a drain and then a 9"pvc that is cut right at this guys fence so all rain water is pouring into there drain and then into his yard. He wants to extend the pipe to the middle of his yard, add a drain, level the lawn so his backyard will drain into his neighbors pipe(which im told leads to a ditch in the back of the neighborhood).

    I need to know where the pipe is laid, how far it stretches, where it leads to, and I need to know that the water is going to flow in the right direction and not backup his neighbor.
    Who do I call? Who do I ask for? As you can tell, this is hard to explain without seeing it so I need to know exactly who to talk to.

    Did you ask his neighbor about the pipe?
