Two-inch water main break causes sinkhole in SW Atlanta, officials say

A two-inch water main break was reported as the cause of a sinkhole appearing in an area of an Atlanta neighborhood on Sunday.

The sinkhole appeared at the corner of Ira Street and Gardner Street, located in SW Atlanta.

Atlanta Department of Watershed Management officials said that the sinkhole was caused by a two-inch water main break in the area.

Crews have since been able to complete repairs and restore water to several homes and two hydrants as of Monday.

There are currently plates covering the portion of the road that is collapsed.

At this time, it is uncertain as to when full restoration will begin.
