Khomenko VP, Leonenko MV 2015 The collapse of clays covering a karst cavity: in-situ investigation, conceptual model and prediction. Depth to the water table and depth to bedrock• No matter how thorough the efforts are to fill a sinkhole, the conditions that created it—water and karst bedrock—are still present.
CRC Press, Boca Raton, pp 885—889• This could mean the installation of a monitoring system designed to reflect variable water behavior typical of karst water flow in addition to the monitoring of the performance of the BMP.
Recommended direct testing locations, based on the geophysical results, are typically provided as part of any investigation. Seek the recommendations of a geotechnical engineer for management of heavy equipment, temporary storage of materials, changes to the soil profile - including cuts, fills, excavation and drainage alteration - on sites that have been found to contain a karst feature. Rem Sens 4 1 :915—933• Your next step depends on the size of the hole:• The National Karst Database Applied Karst Geology Sinkholes & Engin recorded over 10 000 sinkholes on the completed desk study research areas.
Dissolution sinkholes form over long periods of time, with occasional episodes of more rapid subsidence or collapse. locating a sufficient number to adequately represent the area under any proposed stormwater facility; and• Environ Earth Sci 73 7 :3643—3653• Collapse sinkhole formation: as the water filters down through the rocks above, the limestone starts to dissolve and the rocks above drop down to form a sinkhole.
Soluble rocks such as salt, gypsum, chalk and limestone can be dissolved by groundwater on a local scale, causing the collapse of the overlying ground. The emergence of a known dye from a spring grants certainty to a suspicion that ground water moves in a particular pattern. Barr and Alexander, 2012 What is karst?
Adapted from Waltham et al. Cave Books, Ohio, p 454• Become informed about the geology of your area -- online searches offer a relatively rapid means of identifying whether a property lies within a limestone region; state-licensed geologists, local colleges, county planning commissions, local municipalities, and state and federal agencies are other potential sources of information• Issues addressed are taken from the 8th multidiscilinary conference on this subject and chart the characteristics of sinkholes and karst as well as their environmental repercussions.
Warning: If the CSW permit applies, Section 16. Monitoring of groundwater and stormwater runoff behavior requires a thorough understanding of the local geology as the hydrology of karst terrains is vastly different from that of non-karst terrains EPA, 1989.
The second way sinkholes can form is much more common and much less dramatic.
Do I need to worry about my house falling into a sinkhole? The book is excellent for consultants, project managers, regulators, geologists, geophysicists, hydrologists, hydrogeologists, risk assessors, environmental engineers, chemists, toxicologists, and environmental lawyers.
Caution: Dye tracing requires expertise and should only be done by experienced karst hydrogeologists.
