A deep sinkhole that is 15 feet in diameter opened on March 2, about 30 feet from the front door of a home at 3440 Galesburg Court in the Village of Glenbrook, a neighborhood in The Villages, Florida.
According to residents, several trucks dumped cement into the sinkhole the following day. It solidified about six feet below the surface of the ground. While the house did not have any visible damage, utility lines have been exposed and appear to be damaged.
In the wake of Hurricane Irma last September, a sinkhole also opened at the same house, right next to its front door.
This latest sinkhole opened in the same community where several sinkholes opened last month, in the Village of Calumet Grove. Remediation work continues at the site. The residents of the two affected houses were still prohibited to live in their homes on MacLawren Terrace. Crews are installing new drain pipes towards McLawren Terrace to the pond where a new liner will also be installed.
