Who is dumping the water? Why don't you want it in the ditch? Does the ditch belong to you?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

my next door neighbor had to put the aeriation system in due to leach field in back of their house washed out and nesitated pumping the aereation water in my ditch in my front and side yard to main drain.

the reason i do not want the discharge is because my well is in the front yard and the water is eroding the ditch.

Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 8 years ago
Ah. I understand now. I was thinking the city was somehow dumping.

A person is entitled to make the best use of their property, which means they can pretty much do what they want to unless it interferes with someone else's use of their property. For instance, if I own land and want to put in a shooting range, that's my business but if the noise and bullets interfere with my neighbors being able to sleep, etc then I am committing a "nuisance" and have to pay them compensation.

In your case you should be able to sue the neighbor whose system is causing the problem for the dollar value of what it would cost to correct it.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
