You can make a Cement trough Down the Bank and allow the water to Cas Cade Down it to a Safe place. Large pipe needed the pipe should be plenty Large to handle the water from a heavy storm. I d suggest a tile pipe with an inside measurement of at least six inches diameter. The Bottom should of be the drainage cemented for three ditch feet Back from the tile and should allow no leaks around the tile. If you make this kind of a Deal the water runs to the end of the line drops into the drainage ditch and. Immediately runs to the lowest Point.
