What you need is a rich neighbor. When I built my house the water table was at 3 1/2’ Rich dude bought the farm next door and wanted 10’ deep foundation walls on his McMansion. I talked to him about the water table and he just shrugged his shoulders and said, I’ll fix that.
I thought, how the hell is gonna do that? He brought in a big ass excavator and dug down 14’ and put in a 10” drain line. Ran it to a hollow. My god the water poured out of that thing. Dropped the ground water level in the whole neighborhood. I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it.
