What to do if you have a sinkhole on or near your property:
Restrict access to the hole.
Never go down into a sinkhole or attempt to fill the hole yourself.
Take photographs for documentation but do not get too close to the edges of a sinkhole.
Do not allow unauthorized or inexperienced persons to investigate the sinkhole.
If your sinkhole is a public safety hazard or near your home's foundation, contact local police or emergency responders.
