Land O lakes Sinkhole Cleanup Wraps Up

For more than a week, crews have been pulling debris out of a massive sinkhole in Land O Lakes.

The 260-foot-wide sinkhole opened on July 14th, pulling parts of two homes into it.  

Workers drained water in that sinkhole and even poured dirt into it in order to remove debris.  

USF students and scientists will continue to collect data about the sinkhole, which destroyed or impacted a total of eight homes.

Pasco County leaders will now have to decide if they want to leave the sinkhole alone and let it merge with the nearby Lake Saxson or fill it, which could cost upwards of $12 million dollars.
