Ocean Pines Sinkhole

 Community Meetings held 11/4/17 and 11/8/17 at Land O'Lakes Community Center were attended by over 200 citizens. Some of the action items taken away from these meetings are addressed below:
  • Web Page for Updates - this page has been created to provide an easy format for updating the residents in the vicinity of the sinkhole of developments and upcoming changes.
  • Mosquito Control - Variable speed controls in the trucks adjust the amount of material sprayed according to the speed of the truck, which should not exceed 20 mph while spraying. A variety of products (in various formulations) are used to treat the larvae in the water. Some of the ones used have extended release properties for 30+ days of mosquito control. Please contact Pasco County Mosquito Control at 727-376-4568 or visit their website at for additional information.
  • Road Signs - New signs were requested to clarify which addresses on Ocean Pines are able to be accessed on each side of the street. Pasco Traffic Operations met with Public Safety personnel and agreed to create and post signs to reduce the amount of unnecessary traffic in the neighborhood. The signs were in place by the end of November.
  • Site Maintenance - The county cannot in good stewardship send county employees to clean and maintain the condemned properties by the sinkhole. Access to the properties contained within the fenced area is available for any maintenance that needs to be performed.
  • Water Quality Testing - Testing of the water in and in the vicinity of the sinkhole is ongoing. The results of these tests will be posted on this site as they become available.

The sinkhole is scheduled as one of the topics to be presented to the Board of County Commissioners at the BOCC Workshop in the New Port Richey BCC Boardroom on January 30, 2018 at 10:00 AM. BCC Workshops, while open to the public, do not allow public comment or questions. These workshops are informational, but there will be no opportunity for the public to make presentations, ask questions, or otherwise participate directly in the workshop.
