Is a collapse caused by a water main break really a sinkhole?

Doesn't seem so....



Remember that the water mains is under extreme pressure in order to get water through to every single tap in the city. The reservoir containing billions of gallons of water is several hundred feet above the city. Then when the water mains does break, it will be more in the way of one pipe segment becoming unwelded to the next one. That creates a narrow circular gap, so the water exits at high pressure in every direction. That cuts away the surrounding ground like a water jet. The ground itself also gets so saturated with the water that it will crumble away into a cavern before reaching ground level.

This is the internet. There is no truth in labeling plus many misinformed/factually challenged people. Soon it will be reported that it was caused by mother ship from some odd sounding place. (driving Ms Blossom)

Because water main breaks are a dime a dozen. Katz opened a deli in Houston years back. People can fly down there for lunch until the original reopens,

Actually I like the idea that the deli caused it to get more exposure and patronage!

Yes I know, unlikely, especially when they sound pretty well known anyway.

Interesting but I suspect they are pretty well known and don't really need the publicity. Could be that someone was tunneling in...

I also want to throw up when I see people that don't need to be swimming in Flood waters... ie( they are not rescuing or trying to escape) and they are swimming in flood water... THAT COULD HAVE ANYTHING IN IT... like sewage... or chemicals?????

Hopefully the sinkhole doesn't take Katz's down with it because I've been meaning to go there and try their famous pastrami on rye for the longest. Oy vey...

Has anyone else been curious to why there's been so many sinkholes lately or am I the only one?


I wouldn't be too worried about un-natural sinkholes like this. It was created by a water main. That's an entirely different subject surrounding America's aging and failing infrastructure. The natural types are the one's I'd be concerned about as they are usually preceded by fault movement or the subsequent weakening of Karst Formations.

Dats not a sinkhole, its just a ruptured water main. The water washed out the ground around it, leading to a void, into which the road above collapsed. Happens quite frequently, and never normally gets reported, just repaired.

I'm guessing that this only got reported because it was in the center of a major city on a slow news day.
