Frequently, people will ask what can be done about a neighbor's water draining onto their property
. This problem has been around as long as houses, water, and hills have existed. Unfortunately, there are no set answers, and every situation has its own circumstances.
Since water flows downhill, homeowners near the bottom of a hill will always have complaints about those properties that occupy higher land. Many townships do not like to get involved in disputes over water, drainage, or run off because they are generally not permitted to improve or maintain storm drainage facilities that occupy private property. Frequently, the homeowners are asked to try to work out the water problems amongst themselves before the lawyers get involved and make it more expensive for everyone. A professionally designed
and installed stormwater plan can resolve water problems without causing legal problems. One that is not designed properly can make problems worse for your neighbor, and eventually for you, too. We specialize in repairing inadequate drainage systems, designing and installing new drainage systems, and also in inspecting existing drainage systems that are not functioning properly.
