Understanding Sinkholes: Causes, Prevalence, and Signs

Sinkholes are a natural phenomenon that occurs when the ground beneath the surface collapses into a cavity, caused primarily by the dissolution of soluble rocks such as limestone, dolomite, and gypsum. A sinkhole can also occur due to changes in underground water levels, erosion, or drastic changes in land use.

In regions like Middle Tennessee, Southern Kentucky, and Western Kentucky, the prevalence of soluble rock formations makes them more susceptible to sinkhole formation. These areas are classified as "karst terrain," where the dissolving process of soluble rocks can create sinkholes over time.

You should be watchful for these common signs that your commercial property might be affected by a sinkhole:

  • Fresh cracks in the foundations, floors, and walls of the building
  • Doors and windows becoming hard to close or open
  • The appearance of new depressions or dips in the ground around your building
  • Sudden, localized dying of vegetation near these depressions

Remember, early detection of sinkholes can save you from potential disaster. If you notice any of these signs, contact a sinkhole remediation expert immediately.

Inverted Filter Cone Remediation Method: An Effective Solution for Sinkhole Repair

The Inverted Cone Filter (ICF) Remediation Method is a well-established sinkhole repair and remediation technique. This method involves the creation of an inverted, cone-shaped filter that extends from the surface to the base of the sinkhole. The cone is filled with different sizes of aggregate, starting from larger rocks at the bottom to smaller ones at the top.

After the affected area is excavated, a layer of special material known as geotextile fabric is laid over the area. This fabric is then filled with crushed stone, which is compacted for stability. Once the backfilling is completed, the edges of the geotextile fabric are folded over the top layer of the compacted stone. Finally, the original soil that was excavated is placed back on top of the fabric-covered gravel, restoring the surface.

Unlike other remediation techniques, the ICF method maintains the natural drainage, enabling the water to continue to flow while the soil stays in place. This not only resolves the sinkhole issue but also helps to prevent future sinkholes from forming in the same area.

Other benefits of the IFC method include:

  • Its versatility and adaptability to a wide range of sinkhole sizes
  • Can be used in a variety of geological conditions
  • Is cost effective and utilizes native soils
  • More sustainable and environmentally friendly than other methods

Choosing the most appropriate sinkhole remediation technique is crucial when it comes to the safety and integrity of your commercial property. At USS, we are well-versed in all methods for sinkhole remediation, including the inverted cone filter method.
