Since it's illegal to divert the natural flow of water such that it causes problems to others, you might consider making a sump or two. Here's how we do it:
Bore a hole(s) in the lowest spots. We use a 12" tractor auger, but if you can't 3 - 6" hand auger holes placed to make one large hole is fine. Go at least 4' deep. Fill the hole with washed rock - the same kind used for septic installation. The water will go down the hole and perk out of the soil quickly - especially at the bottom of the hole where the weight of the water is so great.
1 cu ft of water = 7.48 gallons. Put in additional holes if you want to top them with sod - though the sod will stay pretty dry.
