BRAZIL, Ind. (WTHI) – A large sinkhole in Brazil, Indiana has one street closed and residents waiting for action.

The hole measures around 20-feet across and 4-feet deep.

You can actually see the water from the sewer system rushing underneath the roadway.

With more rain in the forecast, officials say it’s only going to get worse.

“It’s old and its not built to hold the water we got today due to all the parking lots and everything,” said Jerry Robeson, the Waste Water Supervisor.

“There’s no way for the water to get away from this place. It just stands here,” said Brazil resident Jim Nelson.

Now, if you live in Brazil, city leaders say this hole should not affect your water service.

Officials say they’re talking with local contractors to find a solution to this sinking hole.
