Sinkhole risk at old Zanesville  mine
 
   ZANESVILLE, Ohio- County and state officials have issued a warning about possible sinkholes developing above an abandoned limestone mine in Muskingum Co. and are asking the public to avoid the area.
 
   The Muskingum County Emergency Management Agency and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources recommend that the public stay away from the area of the former Columbia Cement mine in Muskingum County near White Cottage, southwest of Zanesville.
 
   County EMA Director Bo Keck says the state has investigated the area and found it to be unsafe. Keck says there was a sinkhole in March and more are possible.
 
   Keck says four-wheelers and hunters are being told to stay off the property and two land owners in the area were informed.
 
   State and local officials say they will continue to investigate and develop a safety plan.
 
Regarding their findings, the ODNR has issued the following statement:
 
“ODNR experts have investigated the subsidence issues on the Maysville Water Company property and determined conditions exist for more subsidence features to develop. Out of an abundance of caution, it’s ODNR’s recommendation that people stay off the entire property located above the abandoned limestone mine and residents of any homes in the affected area vacate immediately. No one can predict when and if additional subsidence features will occur, so the prudent decision is for people to avoid the area altogether. ODNR, along with state and federal officials, will continue to monitor and investigate the situation and work to develop a remediation and safety plan.”
