Question

Looking for a bit of advice. I live in an urban area with alley access to my garage. Currently the alley is gravel. Every few years the city comes in and throws on more gravel. As you might expect this changes the drainage in the alley. Now when it rains the water flows into my garage and not away. I believe I can fix this problem by raising the floor of the garage a couple of inches and add a concrete pad outside my garage between the structure and the alley.
A few questions questions
1. Can you pour concrete on the existing floor and raise it?
2. Is there a better way of solving this problem?
3. If this is possible is this a costly service and if it is, is this a DIY project??

Thanks in advance

Hello
CALL THE CITY AND SHOW THEM WHAT THEY HAVE DONE AND ASK HOW THEY ARE GOING TO FIX IT, THIS IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM....IF YOU DO NOT GET HELP TALK TO THE CITY ENGINEER THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO GRADE AND RUN THE WATER TO A SAFE PLACE FOR YOU AND YOUR NEIBORS.....GOOD LUCK
