My husband and I live in colorado and as many may know the city of Denver had 3-7-feet of snow dumped on it two weeks ago. Because we live in the foothills we received about 5.5-feet of this snow. Yesterday we noticed water leaking into our garage from the crawl space. I've spoke with some engineers at work and they've suggested a exterior french drain even though I have a soil foundation in the crawl space. First question: Does anyone agree? Second question: Can the drain be diverted to my creek which I have water rights to?
