Alachua County asks for public’s help on reporting sinkholes
The Alachua County Environmental Protection Department is encouraging residents to quickly report any newly spotted or potential sinkholes. County officials say the sooner they learn of problems, then the faster they can make repairs. They say with the extreme drought experienced in the past few years, there is increased risk of sinkhole formation as the rainy season approaches. The county wants to avoid any contamination of the community’s drinking water.
Residents can report observations of newly formed solution features by filling out the online form found on the ACEPD website or contact the ACEPD office at 352-264-6800, or send an email to email@example.com
For more information on sinkholes and other solution features, residents can contact Senior Environmental Specialist, Betty Rosenblatt at 352-264-6800.
