Transcript of Sinkholes
- destroys buildings and land
- lose jobs
In Tangerine, the sinkhole was a problem for Lake Windsor Middle School because it destroyed the portables the students had classes in. This led to dirt, mud, and broken pieces all over the place.
Causes of Sinkholes
- erosion of soil
-lack of water
- constant contact with water
In Tangerine, a sinkhole occurred at Lake Windsor Middle School because of a long and heavy downpour of rain. This caused the soil to erode away forming a sinkhole.
Solutions for Sinkholes
- avoid construction around wetland or after storm
- construct foundation
I feel like the best solution is underpinning because it’s the cheapest and most efficient way.
Impact of sinkholes
- state financial issue
In the novel, Tangerine, the sinkhole impacted many students by injuring them. Also, It most likely cost the state a lot of money to repair the buildings and pay for hospital bills.
