We have a home in the Pacific Northwest...where we get lots of rain. The majority of our property is above and behind our home and is a rocky hillside. We have had quite a bit of water runoff of some sort, coming down our driveway to the street. I am thankful that it is away from our home, but we need to put down new gravel on our driveway. I honestly don't know if we have an underground spring issue or water runoff. The small stream that runs down our driveway occurs for about 3-4 days after a fairly good rain. After that time, it disappears. Can anyone tell me what resources are available to us to determine the exact problem and possible solutions? I don't know where to begin. Do I contact my county? What department would I talk to? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Many phone books have a section on local government. You might start there. Even it you're not sure which department to start with, a few questions should get you directed to the right people. Good luck.
