Sink Hole Investigation

Sinkholes can appear anywhere and are the result of moving water underground washing away the supporting sub-base, soil and rock. Though technically they can happen anywhere, in our community sinkholes happen most often in the streets where utility piping (water/sewer) exists. If a pipe breaks, the sub-surface area becomes vulnerable to erosion with the moving water. 

If you note a pavement aberration, hear rushing water or suspect the formation of a sinkhole to be occurring, please call Street Department immediately at 330-854-2225.
