Fauntleroy sinkhole spotted after overnight water break

Early this morning, Mary messaged us from Fauntleroy about some emergency utility work, with water running down Barton near 38th (map). This morning, Bob Powers shares photos of an apparent sinkhole spotted in its aftermath, and writes:

We noticed this morning that a sink hole is developing in the grassy area in front of the water tower at 38th Ave SW and SW Barton Street. Seattle Public Utilities were working on a broken water line situation very early this morning (about 1:00 a.m.) a few yards east of the sink hole. SPU was notified of the sink hole at 7:45 a.m. this morning and said they would send someone right out. The sink hole is about six feet in diameter and about five feet deep.

I don’ know if this will develop any further but I thought it might be good to alert the neighborhood.

We’ll go over to check later this morning.
