Thank you for using JA. I am Loren, a licensed attorney for over 30 yrs., and I am here to help.
I appreciate your patience as I review your question. I will post my response shortly.
Be aware, however, this is general information and no attorney client relationship is established.
The site may ask you if you wish to speak by phone for an extra charge. There is no obligation for you to accept the phone call offer, unless you want. While I am happy to speak to you, if you wish, I am also happy to continue online. So, there is no pressure to spend extra money.
What you describe is a basis for a claim of nuisance. Anything causing a flow of water or anything else from a neighbor's property to yours is a nuisance.
If you make a demand for the neighbor to move the tank and line and they refuse then you will need to sue them for the nuisance. The court can order the removal of the tank, remediation and money damages.
You may want an attorney to write the demand letter and represent you in court, if necessary.
If you need assistance finding local counsel try Martindale Hubble (site rules prohibit us from referring specific attorneys). Many attorneys themselves use this site to locate attorneys outside their jurisdiction or expertise:
It is a huge worldwide database searchable by location and specialty. The attorneys are peer rated. So, they represent the top of the profession.
If you have no further questions please remember to rate my service (5 Stars) so that I am credited by JA for answering your question and also so that I may close the question.
There is no additional charge to you for a 5 star rating of my service.
