Pond Problem

Asked November 8, 2015, 12:44 PM EST

Who can assist me in resolving a problem with a neighbor's pond leaking onto my property? The pond collects water from a large area and the leakage has increased since the property owners have replaced the intake dam and tried to repair the dam. The property owner has also installed drainage pipes that increase the runoff into the pond. As far as I know , the pond owners have not gotten any permits or inspections for the alterations. On the LOJIC map ,the pond is a blueline perennial that feeds into Fishpool creek.

Let me if this helps.
