Everything You Need to Know About Sinkholes

Sinkholes are a geological phenomenon caused by water dissolving soft rocks like limestone and dolostone, creating underground voids which eventually cause the ground to collapse. The danger posed by sinkholes is that they can sometimes form without any visible sign. This is especially concerning in areas like Tennessee's karst region, which covers most of the state's eastern two-thirds, where the top layer of soil covers the easily dissolvable bedrock. Water can form caves, voids, and fissures in the stone, leading to sinkholes.

Sinkholes may not be immediately visible, even in karst regions. They can be caused by a variety of things in Tennessee, including extreme weather changes, poor grading that lets water infiltrate the subgrade, poorly placed utilities, and water leaks from stormwater or drainage systems. Essentially, anything that lets water into the subgrade can bring about sinkhole formation in a karst region. Not all subsurface collapse features are caused by karst, and factors such as abandoned wells, cisterns, and buried garbage pits can also lead to similar collapses.

The Importance of Promptly Repairing a Sinkhole

Ignoring a sinkhole can have serious consequences. Not only can it lead to significant property damage, but it can also put human lives in danger. Here are some of the potential risks of ignoring a sinkhole:

  • Property Damage: Sinkholes can cause serious damage to your property, including your home and any nearby structures. When the ground collapses, it can cause cracks in your foundation, walls, and ceilings and damage driveways, sidewalks, and other outdoor areas.
  • Safety Hazards: Sinkholes can be a major safety hazard, especially if they occur close to your home or in public areas. When the ground collapses, it can create a sudden drop-off that can lead to serious injuries or even death if someone falls into it.
  • Potential Collapse: If a sinkhole is ignored and not repaired properly, it can continue to grow and potentially cause a collapse. This could mean a total loss of your property or other nearby structures.
  • Insurance Issues: If you ignore a sinkhole and it causes property damage, your insurance company may not cover the costs of repairs. This could leave you with a significant financial burden.

You can’t afford to ignore a sinkhole; it’s not worth the risk. If you suspect a sinkhole on your property or in a public area, acting immediately is important to prevent potential damage and hazards.

Comprehensive Sinkhole Repair in Mt. Juliet

The primary objective of sinkhole repair is to stabilize the ground and prevent the sinkhole from returning. This necessitates finding and eliminating the root cause of the sinkhole, which is typically water-related. Hence, we must regulate the water to keep the sinkhole from resurfacing. The repair process involves excavation to uncover the defect in the bedrock that permits the soil to erode. Once the hole is visible, the proportionally sized stone is used to pack the throat, and the excavation is fortified with geotextile fabric and filled with compacted stone. The top of the gravel can be wrapped with geotextile fabric, and the soil filled back in. This type of repair is commonly known as the "Inverted Cone Filter" repair method. Sinkhole repair is not a do-it-yourself endeavor. Filling the hole with soil is insufficient and may even worsen the sinkhole. Thus, the sinkhole must be fully excavated, and all debris must be cleared before adding the structural fill. The soil is then compacted using specialized equipment. Although the specific approach may differ based on site conditions, the objective is to create a more solid and stable foundation to uphold your property.
