Landscape Swale

We moved into our new construction home in January. We built a ranch home with walkout basement between two exisitng properties. We sodded the front yard and seeded the backyard because we live on roughly an acre lot.

After move in, and a wet early spring thus far, we noticed that our engineer put a swale directly through our backyard. It looks like we have a river going diagonally through it. Never in my wildness mind would we ever sign off on that knowlingly…you would think our builder would point this out?

Question is, will it get better once the grass comes in? Should we look into options to have this corrected?
