I have been getting flooded by the water from the street behind my backyard.
This particular street has been flooded from last week's rain/snow. As a result, my backyard is collecting the water. It happens every time it rains/snows.
Looks like the big trees standing in the flood water will rot soon.

My backyard has a gradually downward slope toward the house. I have a storm drain in the right side of the backyard (facing my house) and a drainage pipe is connected out to the street which effectively spits the water out in normal raining. But now the left side of the backyard (facing the house) is collecting water from the street behind my house.
I have tried to draw a picture with the pitch. Need a good solid solution before I get someone to work on it.

I'm thinking to have a pipe connect from left (water puddle) to right to the existing storm drain. But the pitch is not same level between the left side and right side as you see in the dotted line (picture).
Please!


Thank you

Pictures would help a great deal to understand your issue.
  • From either side of the yard and looking across.
  • From house looking toward the rear.
  • From the rear looking toward the house.
  • Others that might better display what you are attempting to describe.
