comment What can be done about water running under my house?
If I dig on the low side, then I am still going to have a bunch of water running under my house. Am I not understanding this right? I guess I am worried that all that water is flowing more because it is scouring out the dirt under my house. I worry that this will lead to foundation issues.

@JustinK - I have a hole on the west (lower) side of my house. The water fills the hole (from the ground water), and I pump it (via pipe) to the sidewalk gutter at the edge of my property. That runs down the road to the storm drain. (When I said gutter, I did not mean the gutters around my roof, but rather the ones by the roads.)

I doubt I am pumping in circles. It goes to my gutter that is excellent repair and that feeds into a storm drain.

My area of Salt Lake City had secondary water for very cheep. I sadly I doubt I would make much off a water truck.

I am not sure what kind of trench I can dig, but I will think on it and see if I can... It would have to be very deep. There is at least 6 feet of dirt from ground level to the bottom of my house on the East (uphill) side.

My house has slopes running away from it on the front and back. The east side is flat and is the highest point. The west is also flat and is the lowest point (that is where my pump is).
