Help draining a field
I got a problem with my lot and a high water table. The entire back half of my 3/4 acre lot is my garden property line to property line. Here's my situation, I'm south of Atlanta in Spalding county and the lay of the land is basically flat with a slight slope to the back of the lot. The property to the immediate rear is a pie shaped wedge that is part of the lot to my south with a larger tract immediately to the rear of that. My northeast corner is the intersection of the three parcels. The low corner is the southeast corner.
It seems like every third year we get a wet spring like we are having now, and this one really isn't wetter than usual, and my soil is saturated. So much so that a ditch that I have dug down the length of the south property line is full to the brim, basically the water table is just below the surface of the ground. Complicating matters is a stand of running bamboo that crosses all three parcels along my back line and the property to the north. The matted root system of the bamboo prevents any runoff to the east trapping the water on my lot.
I'm working on the bamboo and have the go ahead of two of my neighbors to kill it. My question though pertains to dumping water onto the property of another in Georgia. Eventually when the bamboo is gone, if that's even possible, I'd like continue the ditch (eventually french drain it with terra cotta) all the way to the rear and follow the line across the back and turn it out to the head of a drain at the northeast corner but that would dump the water out onto a neighbor's property. So can I do this?
