Landfill Sinkhole Community Open House Scheduled for Mar. 15th

Hillsborough County's Public Utilities Department has scheduled a Community Open House on Tuesday, March 15 to talk about the sinkhole at the Southeast County Landfill.

Residents are invited to stop by the UF/IFAS Gulf Coast Research and Education Center, 14625 County Road 672 in Balm, any time between 6 and 8 p.m. for the informal information exchange.

Instead of a formal presentation, the open house format will give residents a chance to talk one-on-one with experts from the County and others involved in the remediation project. Maps, diagrams, photos, water quality monitoring reports, and remediation plans also will be available for review.
