A number of factors may be responsible for ponding water. Poor drainage is usually the culprit. However, you could have a sinkhole that is stopped up, or surface runoff coming from an adjacent property, or a leaking septic system may have saturated the soil thereby causing a drainage problem. If ponding occurs regularly, you should be concerned and seek help to get the problem identified and remedied. Sometimes a “French” drain (trenches filled with gravel and covered with soil or sod) may help divert water, or the lot may need to be re-graded to allow proper drainage. Also refer to the sinkhole question above. more
