A wet basement is often caused by a high water table
Wet basement causing high water tables become elevated when they receive more water than they drain off. This can be from unusually high amounts of rain, or excess water from higher elevations. The rain usually falls over a wide area of many square miles so all this water goes into the earth at the same time.
When the water table rises, it does not just rise at your house, because it did not rain on your house only. The water accumulates under and around your home. As the water level continues to rise the weight of the water causes pressure to build (Hydrostatic Pressure). This pressure forces water into settlement cracks in your home’s foundation and sooner or later, into your basement
The thing to understand here is that the high water table is part of the earth and cannot be graded away.
