Don't forget NJ, home of Bound Brook (Drowned Brook), only a a few miles from me.
I'm still trying to figure out what to do about my friend's basement, which began to take on water again midday yesterday. Brand new furnace just installed too. I dug a ditch in the front gravel driveway to lead water away for the time being, made sure the gutters are clear, put temporary long extensions on the leaders. I'm thinking waterproofing the basement walls is the only practical way to go.
