We have the low spot with one neighbor's downspout and the other's front yard and stream which floods our front yard and leech field. As a result our leech field has been clogged. We want to build either a berme or some sort of barrier (cement blocks?, landscape logs?) but do not know exactly how effective this would be. We are desperate and have no sympathy from either neighbor (NYC weekenders!!!!). Can someone offer help? We need to run the barrier about 40 feet. Need to do something quickly.

I would go to your town hall and find out if this situation is illegal on your neighbors part and that the town should notify your neighbors to correct the problem at the neighbors expense or the town will do it and charge them accordingly.

Second choice, hire a lawyer!
