- If you purchase property where trash has already been dumped
in sinkholes, consider cleaning them out and restoring vegetation
to improve water quality.
Check with your local Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) office,
Soil and Water Conservation District, utility district, state conservation
or US Fish and Wildlife Service office. These groups sometimes have funding
with the cost of trash removal in certain watersheds. Volunteer labor
and equipment also can be a big help. Contact local cave clubs and
county litter control
officer for support. County public service authorities will sometimes
waive the landfill tipping fee for waste materials collected in sinkhole
- Contact the above agencies for help with these recommendations.
