I have standing water in my back yard. I cannot easily tie into my sewer system. Is there a sump pump system designed for back yards to relocate water above ground level? What I am thinking is drain tile to a resovior, then pumped out to drain. Any hep on who I can contact or any ideas would be appreciated. FYI, I live in Buffalo, NY.. ground is mostly clay.
Id you pump it to a drain/sewer you will probably be breaking the law. Most cities do not want storm/standing water running into the sewer system since it will overload the capacities. In fact in this area, you are not even allowed to dispose of water that is on the property. It has to be retained in detention basins and then either soak into the ground or drain into cesspools drilled in the ground.
