Sinkholes are not good, but this one really stinks!

Residents in and around a Tarpon Springs Mobile Home Park have a long weekend ahead.

On Wednesday as crews were working on repairing a sinkhole outside of the park, the ground began collapsing further, and the pressure took out water and sewer lines. Water and raw sewage had to be pumped out of the 100’ wide by 60’ deep hole before utility crews could start repairs.

A few residents closest to the hole have been temporarily evacuated, and neighborhoods connected to the affected lines have been asked to conserve water and sewer usage as the pipes are replaced.
