CITRUS PARK, Fla. — Residents in a Citrus Park neighborhood woke up to a big mess and no water due to a water main break on Wednesday morning.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says that the water main break caused a hole approximately 10 feet in diameter to form.
Crews repaired the hole mid-morning.
The hole was located in the Logan Gate subdivision of Citrus Park in the 12400 block of Mondragon Drive.
HCSO has explained that the hole is NOT a sinkhole because it was caused by a water main break.
Water was shut off in the area affecting 12 customers.
HCSO, HCFR, Code Enforcement, TECO, Public works department and officials with the water department responded to the scene.
The street was closed by HCSO for evaluations.
