Simply sink a large sturdy plastic bucket in the ground that has a lot of small 1/2 inch holes in it. Pack the area around the bucket with gravel and line the area to keep fine dirt out. Water will collect in the bucket where a mechanical pump will sit. As the water level rises, the pump will engage and remove the water. The bigger the bucket, the less your pump has to engage thus extending the life of your pump.
