Macomb County which is East of where I live borders on Lake St. Clair, at one time a large area of Macomb County was swampland, over the past 100
years most of it was landfilled, suburbs and subdivisions popped up though out the whole area. In recent years there have been a lot of sinkholes and
fissures because of that, another problem was that the builders who were putting up these homes buried left over wood in backyards and as the wood
degraded over the years it caused sinkholes in many backyards. If you live in that area you have to have flood insurance and sump pumps in your
basement as it's common for water to back up into your home.
