A sinkhole can be caused by many different reasons, so knowing which Division in Public Works to call may not be possible.
If you are not sure you may call any of the following divisions to report the sinkhole:
- Please call the Highway Division, 508-532-6030, for potholes or sinkholes around drainage fixtures (catch basins or storm drains).
- Please call the Water Division, 508-532-6050, for sinkholes near fire hydrants, round water gate covers, or trenches in the road where water work has occurred.
- Please call the Wastewater Division, 508-532-6060, for sinkholes around manhole covers or trenches in the road where sewer work has occurred.
