Recently we helped a client deal with a sinkhole in Wayne, PA. We provided 20 yard containers for sludge removal. The sludge was taken to a clean fill site and kept out of a landfill. This action saved the customer thousands of dollars while also benefiting the environment by not needlessly dumping clean dirt.
Sinkholes are a fact of life in many areas of Pennsylvania as the geology is mostly limestone. The weak acid created by water in the presence of carbon dioxide dissolves the limestone before other rocks. This topography, known as Karst, is prevalent throughout PA and can cause serious problems for homeowners, businesses, and communities. This was not the first time we help a client with a sinkhole and it certainly won’t be the last.
