Re: Do I need a Dry Well?
I would do two things. First, install line drainage to the street to divert downspout runoff to municipal storm systems. Second, I would regrade the soil so that it naturally sheds water away from the house and towards the street. If the neighbors property is draining into yours, that is the NEIGHBOR'S problem, not yours. Speak with the neighbor about him installing his own drainage system. If he won't deal with his runoff, then contact the municipal building authority and they should make him deal with it.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
