Gardens and a cemetery closed by sinkholes

As the mayor of Trzebinia Jarosław Okoczuk informed on his Facebook profile, geological surveys are still being carried out in the commune to supplement those carried out by scientists from the AGH University of Science and Technology. These results, which scientists have already handed over to the municipal authorities, confirm that among the places most at risk of sinkholes are allotment gardens, the cemetery, the vicinity of the railway embankment and forests. Voids were shown there, which “can turn into sinkholes at any time” – we read in the mayor’s entry.

Studies of geological services (still ongoing), which are to supplement those carried out by scientists from the AGH University of Science and Technology on behalf of SRK, confirmed our current knowledge – in the areas that are most at risk, i.e. in the area of ​​ROD, the cemetery in Gaj and the railway embankment, as well as in the nearby forests, there is dozens of voids that can turn into sinkholes at any moment.

Previously, the ROD Gaj allotment gardens and the cemetery at ul John Paul II. On the last one, in the fall, the largest sinkhole so far was formed – 40 graves then fell into the crater. Many residents fear for their safety – it happened that the hole collapsed right next to apartment blocks, as well as next to the community center or other frequented places.

They are already underway in some locations ground protection works commissioned by the Mine Restructuring Company. A company treating an area at risk of sinkholes injects a mixture of cement and ashes through boreholes. Thus, voids and soil loosening are filled, which is to prevent the formation of further holes.
