Desultory thinking: Storm Drainage Solution

Posted By on July 9, 2006

This Old HouseI’ve been battling a storm water problem since we built our house and every year tweak my existing water routing plan contemplating new ways to deal with it. I spotted a “This Old House” video clip that offered a solution … a few more dollars than I want to spend, but I appreciated the engineering ideas. I might be able to use a modified version if my latest French drain project fails to satisfactorily solve my problem.

Here’s a photo of my recent French Drain Project behind our house.
