I am assuming they are weep holes... I have about 4 on each wall, maybe a quarter in diameter and when it pours water comes gushing in! Around the whole basement floor there is a small trench, the water stays in the trench but the moisture causes some damage/mold even with a dehumidifier running. We live in a townhome, and the maintenance guy is a joke. So I won't even bother asking him if this is normal.

Is water entering through these holes normal? Or should I contact someone to come and fix the problem?

Thank you.... I think at this point I will have to deal with it since I am only renting. The water seems to leave the trench around the floor pad within a hour, just remaining moist. I am waiting for the day the water overflows! NY weather is so unpredictable.. Good thing renters insurance covers water damage!

Exposed to mold give me a shout as I am an expert witness and know a lot of law firms ..NYC is the place to be if your suing as we have the best democrap politicians that money can buy. Degenerates of all types and sizes and SIZE does make a difference as guess Weiner man is out in front with a LEZ showing her behind
