My current sump system drains into an area that has high traffic for various activities such as log splitting and brush clearing. This creates a very muddy mess. I want to relocate the sump drain pipe to a pond that is close by (< 50 ft.). Is this acceptable to do? The pond water does have the potential to seep into a creek nearby as well. I am assuming it is OK since the water is from the ground/rain but I want to be sure it would be appropriate.
NOTE: The pond is on my private property. The water does not actively drain into the creek unless there is a lot of rainfall in the spring. And even then, there is about 100' until the water reaches the actual creek (the creek branches out towards my pond).
