Dear Arun
     For over flow problem is due to many reasons
1 soak pit is old
2 It may be clogged
3.Frequently water flowing in to soak pit and it is beyond the capacity of soak pit.
4. Earlier design for less people to be used but after that load increased.
5. Water table of ground is high.
6. It is better to take help from local engineer for redesigning the system.
