A sinkhole formed and was discovered in the middle of 1st St. East in Webster March 20. By the next day, city crews were out digging up the road to find the cause. According to Arlie Larson with the city water department, the sinkhole was caused by a leaking water main which caused a soft spot to form under the road.
