Asked by Gregory J. Mcmillan, Cottage Grove, WI • Tue May 25, 2010
Upon a showing of a home the basement had signs of moisture in it. I noticed a sump pump lying on the floor and could hear a different sump pump pumping out water. The sump pump doing the pumping was simply discharging water from a pvc pipe within a few feet of the home leading me to believe the water was simply running down back into the foundation while the unplugged sump pump had the discharge hose also outside leading to the road but of course wasnâ€™t hooked up. The home is somewhat (75yds) close to a creek and has not been landscaped yet to dissipate water. Iâ€™m concerned about flooding within a proximity to a creek. Iâ€™ve also looked at a GIS flood map from the Wisconsin DNR and noticed the 1% zone or 1 year every 100 is not too far from the area. Iâ€™m simply concerned about flooding? Any thoughts?
