I have a very significant drainage issue in my backyard which finally was corrected, however this correction has led to standing water on my front sidewalk which is stagnate and growing algae and is now a hazardous situation. I'm being informed that drywells and french drains won't really help the issue due to the large amounts of water involved, but I was wondering if it is possible to get a large (500 gallon drywell) and have it equipped to then become a sprinkler system that could spread this water out throughout my front yard where it could water my lawn and garden?? Is there anything out there that you know of? I've googled it and haven't found a good solution. My topsoil is very shallow (couple inches at best) followed by a large layer of clay which doesn't support a good seepage of this water. My property is 60 x 120 and prior to my current drainage solution, the back used to be under water (enough to have ducks swim)from March through late July and covered approximately 1/3rd of the property. The Village of Hanover park is telling me their hands are tied and issuing me warning citations about the front, even though when the system was installed it was within their Village codes. I want something that will actually be a solution. I don't want something that will give another neighbor a problem, or be a safety hazard. This problem occurred as a result of others in the neighborhood blocking the natural easement flow by adding dirt and structures in their backyards without permits. Unfortunately the Village informs me that they can't do anything about it. Essentially, I'm being penalized for following Village ordinances and they are suggesting corrections that they admit will not solve the problem. Can you please help??
