What's a Sinkhole?
A sinkhole is an area of ground that has no natural external surface
drainage--when it rains, the water stays inside the sinkhole and
typically drains into the subsurface. Sinkholes can vary from a few
feet to hundreds of acres and from less than 1 to more than 100 feet
deep. Some are shaped like shallow bowls or saucers whereas others
have vertical walls; some hold water and form natural ponds.
Typically, sinkholes form so slowly that little change is
noticeable, but they can form suddenly when a collapse occurs. Such
a collapse can have a dramatic effect if it occurs in an urban
setting. Every sinkhole repair is unique because every sinkhole is
unique. Mann Excavation works in partnership only with licensed
engineers to design a tailored solution and restore stability to
structures damaged by sinkholes.
