One of the local counties only permits overland summer drainage on road allowances. So what does one do with winter sump pump flows? Well apparently, there are not to be any within the county. So the county is trying to regulate nature? Good Luck county. Now what does one do? Build a glacier in the back yard, where it slopes to county land, so they can get a big melt in the spring, and comply with there overland summer drainage? Oh well, more government waste to tax money.
This is about like the Indiana State legislature in 19th defining the value of pi exactly, for "palatability." Or Pierre E idiot Trudeau ramming french on western Canada. It just ain't gonna work.
