Quote: "Sinkholes seem to be creating quite a stir in the news with bizarre incidents popping up — or should I say popping down — around the world. The recent tragic death of a man who vanished into a huge crevice in Florida is not the only mysterious sinkhole incident to have punctured the U.S. Just last week a golfer in Illinois suddenly plummeted 18 feet into the ground after a man-hole-sized crevice opened up on the course. On Tuesday in Washington, D.C., another sinkhole appeared, and a 17-foot-deep sinkhole was discovered on Wednesday morning in Holyoke, Massachusetts. There was also a nine-acre sinkhole in Assumption Parish, Louisiana, that garnered the attention of environmental activist Erin Brockovich."

2013-03-13 - Sinkhole opens up on street in Holyoke (Massachusetts):

Note: They say a collapsed sewer caused it and I have no reason to doubt that. However, they're right by a river there, so the water table is not far below ground. Hydrogen sulfide is somewhat water-soluble. As it contaminates water, we may see biogenic sulfide corrosion eating away at stuff near the water table, like sewer pipes, natural gas lines, foundations in buildings, that kind of thing. Then as our underground infrastructure dissolves away, sinkholes will appear. Unlike sinkholes caused along coasts as subsurface methane hydrate deposits dissociate, the sinkholes formed due to biogenic sulfide corrosion eating away at our underground infrastructure may happen just about anywhere...
