In reply to Underground Spring Drainage Problem by Stuart Delony on January 17th, 2003 07:51 AM [Go to top of thread]

there are plenty of alternatives and you would be better of getting in touch with a pro on this. kinda pick his brain. water has a major tendacy to go to least resistance so if you try to divert it you could cause a underground problem and errosion that could collaps the earth over time other than that if you do want to fix it try to put a concrete basin full of stone in the place of the spring it will give you a holding area to divert the water from. At the basin you can direct the water where you want it to go from there through underground pipeing you have to figure out how much flow there is so you put the right size in or you can just dig a trench and fill it with some heavy landscape fabric and stone . the stone in the trench is crucial as it slows the flow down and does not wash the fabric away sorry about the long explaniation
good luck
