My waders stay at the shop till needed but I always carry knee-high rubber boots on the truck.
We pumped the basement before working in it but we did have to walk in the left overs
One thing to keep in mind when working in stuff like this is that you could get shocked or electricuted
Also consider that the Amperage will kill you if you are not careful, one amp is enough to kill you.
I always have my knee highs on the van.
I get a fair amount of these as most underdrain systems are tied in with the sewer, so it's mostly ground water.
If I see too many hazards(wires etc) I'll call a pumper truck. If I don't have a safe working area to use power tools I'll try a blow bag to get it drained and then snake it.
I also have cow gloves for the deep plunge.

knee high rubber boots are always in the van. we have high water tables and all basements. when the sump pump quits working the ground water can come up fast. Even with a city backup I don't see sewage up that high very often but it does happen.
