Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

After one of the many recent significant rainstorms this season I noticed a sink hole appeared in my front yard in NW DC. We’ve owned since 2015 without any sign of issues. After re-filling with loads of dirt and replanting grass I thought I had the problem fixed. After another torrential rainstorm unfortunately the problem clearly remains. DC 311 has not had any good options. The more worrisome issue is that this occurred near the gas line that runs through my entire block in everyone’s front yard. Any reader recommendations on who to contact in the city to get this looked at?”
