Basement flooding through sumphole
I recently inherited my parents house. Several years ago an oil spill occured in the yard, alongside the house, on the driveway. An oil company mistakenly deliverd oil to the wrong address. All the soil on that side of the house was dug out as it had to be burned because of the environmental impact. The soil around the house has a high clay content and when the hole was backfilled, much to my late fathers annoyance, instead of using weeping tile and clay, gravel was used to do the backfilling. The oil company that was responsible for the spill refused to do anything further to repair the yard.
