Does anyone have a link to, or remember, the guy who built a bunker in his backyard?

One of my biggest dreams is to have an entire underground house some day, complete with a tunnel system and periscopes to check out the surface.

That is definitly too cool.

So you would need a sump-pump or something to get rid of the water.

Maybe a hand pumped bilge running to a hose somewhere, or waterproof the walls. I think you'd have to make it out of cement block really to keep the water out.

ETA: You could built it in such a way that the water would drain downhill, or you could run a hose or pvc dug into the ground at an angle if it is not somewhere elevated, and have a drain in the middle of the floor. It could double as a urinal.

If you could get a 12V pump and a solar panel, that would work pretty good.

That looked like pretty shitty construction to me.  He should have done his homework.

He was doing it for the hell of it if I recall, I doubt he intended it for a SHTF bunker, hence the router on a stick for his laptop and lack of any furnishings.
