The greater Chicago area’s aging infrastructure is more vulnerable than ever. Instances of catastrophic failures such as collapsed catch basins and sinkholes are on the rise. These occur when cracks in water and sewer lines cause the soil to infiltrate the pipes. As water rushing through the pipes spills out of the cracks, it displaces soil. This creates voids in the earth which expand until the earth’s surface above the void collapses.
