Common Causes of Basement Water Problems
Hydrostatic pressure is a term used to describe a high or rising water table. In St. Louis, water tables can fluctuate dramatically depending on rainfall amounts, snowmelt and drought. If the water table rises enough, water can come up through cracks in the floor or around the perimeter at the floor and wall seam. Basement waterproofing — the installation of interior drainage systems and sump pumps — relieves the hydrostatic pressure and keeps water from entering the basement

EXTERIOR WATER ISSUES
Exterior water issues include standing water in the yard, water coming in over top of the foundation, window wells filling up and downspouts dumping next to the foundation. Correcting the yard grade, installing French drains and extending downspouts are effective and simple solutions to these problems.
