I take it the east side is this highest end of a slope. Does the land on the low side lower than the crawl space or cellar floor? If so you can dig a trench from the low side to the high side and install a footer drain. That will give the water on the high side a place to go.Take a look & see what you can come up with. Good Luck C.

Thanks for replying. I have a feeling that we are going to have to end up using some type of drain as you described.

I was hoping that we could find the water vein before it gets to the house and reroute it. Have you heard of anyone successfully doing that?

I should have mentioned to dig this trench on the outside wall of the foundation, and to go down as far as the bottom of the wall. Make sure that the end point of the drain is lower than the bottom of the footing. If your'e not sure of the grade a transit may help. C.
