What can I do about my neighbor's drainage coming onto my lot?

It is recommended that the property owners try to work out a mutually beneficial solution with nearby property owners on drainage issues.

Normally, a drainage swale can be created on the property between the homes to direct the drainage to the street or backyard and away from structures. If a solution cannot be worked out to the satisfaction of the property owners, and one property owner feels they are being damaged by the other property owner, it is a civil matter, which may require appropriate legal counsel to resolve the matter.
