Kathie I am attorney who deals with kind of problem very often. The problem is your neighbor has every right to dump his/her water onto his property. Once the water seeps under ground it becomes your problem. The law states " be nice to your neighbor" its a clause that our four fathers added to the constitution. If suing in your mind, don't think about it, this could cause a problem with the trial judge because of the be nice to your neighbor clause. I have seen Judges award cash settlements to the other parties involved. Sam
