I called today and talked to Dave Pannell and he is cool with a small trench to help with the runoff. He also said that this is the first he has heard of a drainage problem in that area and was thankful that I called to let him know. He said they'd get out to look at it, but they are so backed up (finally going to fix the street in front of my house!) that they won't be able to get to it anytime soon.
He doesn't want any deep trenches dug that could make mowing difficult once it dries out.
