Digging a Trench Through Tree Roots

I have a mature sweet gum tree that shades my sun room nicely, but I need to run a drain tube down the side of my house. However the roots of the tree cross the area where the drain tube has to go. How much of the roots can be cut without it killing the tree? I need as much information as I can get. Thanks.
