Some of you know the neighbor above me had a leak on her hillside which caused it to slide down to mine during the last BIG rain. As it turns out her water leak is the spring I've been trying to dewater for the last year. Three months after my new retaining wall was finished I started have water flooding through an adjacent wall. When I found the Contractor had removed part of my spring dewatering system I assumed that was my problem. Little did I know she had been looking for a water leak due to high meter readings.

The other day I heard the owner's son talking to City Engineer claiming a 3/4" line could not possibly do that much damage. As such I did a quick bucket test and figured out the flow with our 185 psi supply. Here is the math:

.134 cfs x 1-year = 4,225,824 cubic feet or 31,609,163 gallons per year

That assumes full flow which it wasn't until the end but it gives you an idea of the potential.
