Thank you all for your well thought out replies. All of you make very good points and have given me a lot to think about.

At this point, I think I will take two approaches. An exterior daylight drain and waterproofing to the max depth possible without inviting the creek, and a subfloor drain w/drain tubes for the block.

Thanks again, this site is awesome.
