Default Lost my battle with water :(

I've been fighting a losing battle with water at my property. Even though we live near the top of a hill, because of the topography, we get big problems with fast flowing water across our property. Well, this years crazy UK "summer" weather (thank you Mr. sunken jet stream) has me beat. Fast flowing flood water has finally deposited 30 tonnes of my drive substrate 1 mile, yes, 1 mile from my property!!!!!! The same water also lifted a 10 tonne slab of concrete & moved it 3' off it's footings. Enough is enough. So rather than drumming, yours truly + friends are part way through constructing a new drive (read small road) c/w storm drains. It's a big project. 80 tonnes of concrete should see things stabilised. Another worry off my mind.
