Tons Of Debris Removed From 2 Pasco Sinkholes

Published June 8, 2008
"The worst sinkhole of all the sinkholes was in Pasco near Crews Lake," said Robyn Felix, a water district spokeswoman.

Located east of the Suncoast Parkway and north of the Crews Lake Park entrance, that sinkhole produced 83 tons of refuse, mostly tires, Felix said.

"It's been there a long time and it accumulated over a long time," Zajac said of the Crews Lake sinkhole, part of a chain of sinkholes known as Hernasco Sink.

The second-worst sinkhole, containing about 3 tons of junk, was on the Pinellas County side of County Line Road. Known as Arch Sink, the hole yielded a small handgun among the discards.
