We currently have a project constructing a shop/garage in the Texas hill country. The site is above the flood plane and water table. The site is on the side of a hill; the ground is overwhelmingly limestone.
Construction has halted due to unusual and extensive rainfall in the area for the last several weeks.
What is the appropriate course of action considering:
As an aside: There are several problems with this project including the floor (the top of the foundation) being out of level by several inches. During previous rain activity, prior to the roof installation, water was observed pooling in the north west corner. It was believed that this would not be a problem after the building was finished and watertight.
This is the topography of the area with the site in red.
This is the site plan with the building in red.
This is the longitudinal section with the below grade portion in red.
This is the engineering for the walls, including the french drain and waterproofing.
This is the floor plan with known water penetration areas in red.
Over view with known water penetration areas in red.
Flowing from saw cut; seems to be high flow with visible water movement and pooling ~2 inches deep.
Flowing from wall/floor joint; seems to be high flow (but less then the saw cut) with visible water movement and pooling ~1 inch deep.
Flowing up between floor and concrete drive outside; seems to be high flow with visible water movement but minimal pooling.
