We'll, it's been over two years since the excavation and building of retention ponds started down here, we had no problems with any of them flooding during Irma and have had no hint of a sink hole since this all started. Maybe they'll eventually show up down here but there have been none documented unlike some areas north of 44. We live on water and I would not hesitate for one minute in building on water again.

.....and they are using plastic storm water pipe around all the new builds, not the holed, leaking, and rusty tin stuff they used 'up north' that seems to be linked with many of the so called sinkholes.

But, IMO usually takes around 15 years for the old metal street drains to leak enough to cause ground to collapse. Hopefully the are using non rust pipes for the last 10 years? I know some the ones up north are corrigated steel cause I can see them in the drained pond rotted out.

IMO I would just make sure street drains to retention pond don’t run under your property. IMO it should be disclosed what runs under your lot especially 15 or 20 foot down below pond water levels

We all have more important things to worry about for the relatively short period of time we have left on this earth without worrying about a plastic pipe 20 feet under ground. Not all, but most of these ponds have only one pipe in and one pipe out and you can easily see where they are located. I'm safe from the worry.

You are right again. Sinkholes are caused by the geological composition of this area. Google sinkholes in Florida. the worst area is over by Tampa. The Morses don't build over there.

There is a difference between a sink hole and a collapsed pipe.

Maybe if the district government would keep the maps posted on the website up to date, there would be less confusion. Most are over 2 years old now. You have to wonder if the district government actually knows what areas they are responsible for.

I don't wonder. Have you signed up for updates?
