New Testing Scheduled Next Week At Smith County Sinkhole

New testing is scheduled to begin next week at the site of a sinkhole in Smith County. The hole on FM 724 was discovered in late June.

A smaller sinkhole was discovered last Wednesday. The hole is about three feet deep and measures about 10 feet in diameter.

TX DOT says crews finished a drilling study yesterday. They're waiting on those results to determine if more studies need to be done.

Next week, crews are scheduled to begin seismic testing in the area.
