Sump pump discharge


Im stumped on the best way to discharge my sump pump. I cant go to the street because of an easement or through my yard because theres an alley with poor drainage.
Im by chicago (brookfield) and the line will freeze in winter so im planning to bury french drain pipe surrounded by gravel.
I added a basic drawing of my yard and what i was planning. The red line would be a 4" corragated drain pipe to a gravel pit(garbage can with holes and gravel)under a small deck.
My yard does get flooded spots in heavy rain and im worried it may not be able to drain when the ground is saturated or cold.
Im pretty handy but ive never did anything with outdoor drainage.
Any help or opinions greatly appreciated

Re: Sump pump discharge


A perk test is done to see how fast water will be absorbed
