Coles County, Illinois
Illinois Drainage law is written to generally favor improving drainage.It is also written to favor parties that come to agreement out of court. There isn't a drainage cop that'll come out and look at something and say this is illegal, undo it or face fines. You'll have to hire a civil engineer to act as an expert witness and convince a Judge to rule in your favor. Your neighbor could do likewise and then the Judge would have to decide who to believe. Chances are neither would be able to find civil engineers that would want to do this for a reasonable price.
